The Wiehle Avenue at W&OD Trail project is currently in the Land Acquisition Phase. Dominion Energy Virginia (DEV) has recently completed their relocation design of the overhead electrical transmission lines. Relocation of DEV utilities is necessary to accommodate the proposed pedestrian bridge construction over Wiehle Avenue. The DEV utility work includes the removal of existing monopoles, installation of new poles, and the relocation of overhead transmission facilities. The DEV relocation work will begin in May 2021 and is expected to be complete by September 2021.
Throughout this project, the W&OD Trail will be relocated, and pedestrians will need to use the adjacent paved or gravel trails. The W&OD Trail, within the limits of relocation area, will be detoured during this work. Work areas include the following:
The construction of the trail project is expected to begin in Summer of 2022.

The new bridge will accommodate both the gravel path and asphalt W&OD Trail at this location. Minor roadway, sidewalk and median modifications will be made to Wiehle Avenue at this location to accommodate the bridge. Several utility relocations will be required for the project site along with the installation of drainage and stormwater management features.
