North Quintana Street from Washington Boulevard to 19th Street North (Arlington-East Falls Church Neighborhood)
Out to Bid
July, 2019 Update:
Contractor selected, construction date TBD pending contractor availability and sequencing/completion of other construction projects currently underway.
About the Project
- A new 5’ wide concrete sidewalk will be constructed along the east side of the street. It will narrow to 4’ in width at one location to protect a mature tree.
- A utility (grass) strip will also be included as part of the project, located adjacent to the sidewalk.
- The utility (grass) strip width will be mostly two and a half feet along the east side, except where a mature tree is to be protected. There will be no utility (grass) strip at that location.
- LED Carlyle-style streetlights will replace existing DVP-owned Cobra streetlights.
- Stormwater drainage improvements will be made within the project limits.
- The street width will be narrowed to 28’-0” at the northerly end of the project limits, closer to Washington Blvd, and on street parking will be retained along both sides.
- The existing utility (grass) strip with mature trees along the west side at the northerly end will be widened to provide more space for the roots, currently overgrowing the curb due to inadequate width.
- The street width will be narrowed to 22’-0” at the mid to southerly parts of the project limits, and on street parking will be retained along the east side only.
- The narrowed roadway will maintain two travel lanes, one in each direction, but will be considered a yield street.
