New Jermantown Road Bridge and Sidewalk Now Open

The first portion of the new Jermantown Road Bridge opened in 2021 with a 10-foot-wide sidewalk on the bridge that provided the first Jermantown Road sidewalk crossing since the original bridge opened in 1961.

The second phase of the Jermantown Bridge opened to vehicles and pedestrians in July 2023 and was in use for two-way travel while finishing work was completed along the north and south approaches to the bridge. All work is now complete and the bridge is fully open with two travel lanes in each direction as well as a 10-foot-wide shared-use path on the west side, a six-foot-wide sidewalk on the east side, and five-foot-wide bike lanes in each direction. 

The City of Fairfax has a Jermantown Road Corridor Improvements Project for the area from I-66 to near Route 50. Learn more here [].

Phoenix Drive, located immediately north of I-66, provides access to the new 66 Parallel Trail, a 10-foot-wide shared-use path built along I-66 from Dunn Loring to Centreville as part of the project. This paved trail provides cyclists and pedestrians with off-road access to Metrorail stations, parks, neighborhoods, and other trails. Learn more here [].

What Neighbors Can Expect

  • Noisy construction activities will be avoided at night, when possible. Noise to expect at night includes back-up alarms on equipment and trucks, which is necessary to protect worker safety
  • Lighting of the construction area will be directed to minimize light pollution for nearby residents
  • Project emails and website will be used to communicate major traffic switches or nighttime work
