Army Navy Drive PBL Missing Link
Army Navy Drive between South Lynn Street and South Joyce Street, 22202 View Map
This project is currently in the concept design phase.
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.

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 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
Concept Design Engagement
The project team prepared two concept design alternatives for this corridor that incorporated the feedback received in the existing conditions engagement. We are currently reviewing public input collected during a public engagement on these alternatives to identify a preferred option to advance to final concept design. This engagement featured a virtual public meeting and an online feedback form.

In the summer of 2021, The project team shared an online feedback form with stakeholders, community members and through county communication channels to gather and assess the community’s thoughts, ideas, and concerns about the existing conditions at the project location.
The total project cost is estimated at $4.25 million. Funding comes from local commercial and industrial tax revenues dedicated to transportation and the County’s infrastructure investment fund for Crystal City.
