RT. Widening Update
February 16, 2020, 8:00 AM

The first step towards making this BRT project a reality is the widening of Richmond Highway 2.9 miles from Jeff Todd Way to Sherwood Hall Lane. This is a $372 million Virginia Department of Transportation project that will widen Richmond Highway from four to six lanes, add separate bicycle lanes and sidewalks on both sides of the road, and “reserve median width to accommodate Fairfax County's future dedicated bus-only lanes,” according to VDOT’s website. Construction on these additional lanes is scheduled to last three years beginning in 2023. Construction on Section l is scheduled to begin in 2023 and be completed in early 2027, while construction on Section II will span from 2025-2029. Phase III will extend the BRT to Prince William County but that’s in the future and a schedule has not yet been determined.
