Columbia Pike between South Wakefield Street and South Oakland 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 bid documents completed, procurement will begin for a contractor to construct the project.
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.
