Columbia Pike between South Garfield Street and South Quinn Street
This segment of the Columbia Pike Multimodal Project is in the final phase of design.
County staff are working with adjacent property owners to finalize and acquire easements. Once all easements have been secured and project bid documents completed, procurement will begin for a contractor to construct the project.
New traffic signals
As part of the project design, a new traffic signal and crosswalk are being considered at South Rolfe Street. The County is also exploring the feasibility of changing the pedestrian-activated HAWK signal at South Scott Street to a full traffic signal. The signals at Scott and Rolfe Streets would be synchronized.
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
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.
