New W&OD Trail Bridge Opened

Transurban-Fluor and the Virginia Department of Transportation opened the new Washington & Old Dominion Trail bridge crossing the Capital Beltway June 15 with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Transurban-Bridge_012As part of the Capital Beltway HOT Lanes Project, the team replaced the approximately 40-year-old W&OD Trail bridge, improving access for bikers, runners and pedestrians and enhancing regional mobility. Many local representatives were on hand to speak about the project, and Transurban-Fluor presented the Friends of W&OD Trail with a $2,500 community grant.
