Van Buren Bridge

Project Scope

The Van Buren Bridge project will replace the existing Van Buren Bridge to accommodate pedestrians along this corridor to the East Falls Church Metro. The current bridge has no pedestrian access and is not up to current bridge codes and standards. The new bridge will accommodate two lanes of vehicular traffic and have a 12' pedestrian walkway on the downstream side. This project is funded through the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority and Virginia Department of Transportation's Revenue Sharing program.
