Construction of a new walkway on Fox Mill Road in Reston is nearly halfway complete.

The project — which includes the installation of a walkway from Reston Parkway to Fairfax County Parkway — is 40% complete, according to Robin Geiger, a spokesperson for the Fairfax County Department of Transportation.

Based on the current timeline, the walkway will be completed in April.

“The contractor has briefly stopped working because they are waiting delivery of structures that should arrive soon to resume work,” Geiger wrote in a statement to FFXnow.

Work will then resume on the western end of the project by Fairfax County Parkway. The project includes roughly 2,000 linear feet of an 8-foot-wide asphalt walkway, including curb and gutter, on the north side of the road.

A separate project with more intersection improvements is currently in the design phase.

It includes the installation of a permanent traffic signal at the intersection of Fox Mill and Pinecrest Road, the construction of left-turn lanes on northbound and southbound Fox Mill, the addition of four crosswalks, and an 8-foot-wide walkway and curb ramp on the southeast corner of the intersection.

The $5.7 million project is financed through Fairfax County funds.

A temporary traffic signal was installed in the area in August 2021. Right-of-way acquisition will begin in the summer, followed by the beginning of construction in the fall of 2024, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
