Map

The project team has developed two preliminary concept designs that include enhanced bike lanes and right-of-way improvements along this one-block segment of the Army Navy Drive corridor. There is a current engagement opportunity open through February 6, 2022 to gather public feedback to incorporate into the concept design process.

Project schedule:

  • Spring 2022 - Conceptual design
  • Spring to Summer 2022 - Public engagement on Conceptual Design
  • Summer to Fall 2022 - Design Development
  • Fall 2022 to Summer 2023 - Final engineering design
  • Fall 2023 - Procurement
  • Spring 2024 - Anticipated start of construction
  • Spring 2025 - Anticipated completion of construction

About the Project

This project will provide enhanced bike facilities along one or both sides of Army Navy Drive between South Joyce Street and South Lynn Street. The goals are to enhance the street environment and improve travel conditions for all users. This “missing link” project will extend the reach of existing bike lanes by providing a connection to the adjacent Army Navy Drive Complete Streets project, creating a continuous link to the Crystal City Bike Network.

Improvements under consideration include physical separation of the existing bike lane, reconstructing and realigning sidewalks, adding street trees, modifying crosswalks, and upgrading road striping. Together these improvements will create a safer, more accessible, and more comfortable environment for all users along Army Navy Drive.

Planning context: The Master Transportation Plan Bicycle Element calls for this segment of Army Navy Drive to be reconstructed with enhanced bike facilities, providing a safe environment for people walking, biking, using transit and driving.

Public Process

Public engagement for this segment of Army Navy Drive is underway and will continue in phases through fall 2021. Prior to this project, this section of the corridor was identified as a “missing link” for enhanced bicycle facilities by members of the community during public engagement for the Army Navy Drive Complete Streets project

Winter 2021/2022

Concept Design Engagement

The project team has prepared two concept design alternatives for this corridor that incorporates the feedback received in the existing conditions engagement into the designs for this corridor. We are currently conducting engagement on these alternatives to identify a preferred option to advance to final concept design. This engagement will feature a virtual public meeting and an online feedback form.

Public Meeting
