Army Navy Drive between South Lynn Street and South Joyce Street, in Pentagon City
The project team is developing preliminary concept designs that include enhanced bike lanes and right-of-way improvements along this one-block segment of the Army Navy Drive corridor. We are scheduling engagement opportunities to incorporate public feedback 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.
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.
