Columbia Pike between South Wakefield Street and South Oakland Street
Comments on the final plans for improvements on this segment of Columbia Pike are being reviewed, with final design approval expected early next year. Construction is anticipated to begin in fall 2020.
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
Project staff have been meeting with adjacent property owners regarding this project. Additionally, staff attended meetings of the following civic associations to give a project update:
- Alcova Heights
Staff will continue their outreach to nearby civic associations as the project moves forward.
