New Ramp Provides Non-Vehicular Access
to Eisenhower Avenue from South of the Beltway
On Saturday, June 25th, the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project will open the new bicycle and pedestrian path on the ramp that connects northbound Telegraph Road with Eisenhower Avenue in the Telegraph Road Interchange work area. This dedicated pathway will provide the first safe and direct connection for pedestrians and bicyclists between Huntington and Eisenhower Avenues in the Telegraph Road area since the Capitol Beltway was built. The new sidewalk crosses Cameron Run on the east side of the newly completed Telegraph Road bridge, then connects to the flyover ramp crossing the Capitol Beltway. Now, residents south of the Beltway can readily access destinations in the Eisenhower Valley.
Under construction since February 2008, the Telegraph Road Interchange is the final major roadway component of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project. The $236.8 million contract for the Interchange work is the largest single contract ever awarded by the Virginia Department of Transportation. Construction is on schedule for substantial completion by fall of 2012 and contract completion in June 2013. When the Interchange is complete, it will improve traffic flow for the 46,000 motorists who travel it daily.
Please use caution when traveling in this area. All construction-related work and dates are subject to change, depending on weather, material and contractor availability or other unforeseen conditions.
