Vienna to use VDOT funds for upcoming projects

Must Read

Vienna officials will be using the best kind of money – someone else’s – to execute a series of projects around town.

Vienna Town Council members on Oct. 25 agreed to let the town’s Department of Public Works use Transportation Alternative funds from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to finance the projects.

The initiatives include a $766,439 project to extend the Locust Street trail from Center Street to the Washington & Old Dominion Regional Trail ($766,439). Improvements will include widening the existing walkway to an official 8-foot-wide asphalt shared-use path and addressing drainage issues in the vicinity, which sometimes make the path unusable by pedestrians and some bicyclists.

Other projects will include a new bridge at the Freeman Store & Museum and a sidewalk along Park Street, N.E.


The town earlier did not get any nibbles for the Freeman Store bridge, but are “hoping to get some good bids now,” said Vienna Public Works Director Michael Gallagher.
