New Gallows Road Bridge
The new Gallows Road Bridge will be wider and include a 5’ bike lane in each direction. Pedestrians will be able to use a 7’ wide sidewalk along northbound Gallows Road or a 10’ wide barrier-separated path along southbound Gallows Road. Improved pedestrian and bicycle facilities will tie into the Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metrorail Station.
New Shared-Use Path
A 10-foot-wide shared-use path is being built parallel to I-66 from Dunn Loring to Centreville as part of the project, with its eastern terminus at Gallows Road. This paved trail will provide cyclists and pedestrians with off-road access to Metro stations, parks, other trails, and communities stretching from Dunn Loring to Centreville. Sidewalks and bike lanes along Gallows Road will connect the new path to the nearby W&OD Trail. Learn more here.
