Columbia Pike between South Garfield Street and South Quinn Street, Arlington, VA 22204  View Map


Out to Bid

The project went out to bid in May 2023.

Washington Gas is continuing to perform work on Columbia Pike at the intersection of South Courthouse Road and will move westward toward South Walter Reed Drive.

County crews will begin construction on the Multimodal Street Improvements in late summer 2023.

About the Project

This work is part of the Columbia Pike Multimodal project that will make Columbia Pike a safer, more accessible route for all users. Arlington is transforming this main thoroughfare into a complete street that balances all modes of travel and supports high-quality, high-frequency transit service.

In addition to visible improvements to the road, extensive work will occur below the roadway to replace aging and leak-prone water and sewer pipes and to bury existing overhead utilities underground.

Streetscape improvements will include:

  • Wider sidewalks
  • New street lights
  • Upgraded traffic signals
  • Street trees

Public Process

Staff have met with adjacent property owners regarding this project and with civic associations to discuss the Columbia Pike Multimodal Project and provide construction updates. Outreach will continue as the project moves forward.
