Soapstone bike lane project starts Monday

Soapstone Dr.
VDOT begins work on the road diet project on Soapstone Dr on Monday, Oct. 17. The project will change the configuration of the road, between Glade Dr to Sunrise Valley Dr, from 4 regular travel lanes to 2 travel lanes and 2 bike lanes with a center turn lane.

Work will begin on the southern-most segment of the road from south of Lawyers Rd to Glade Dr which is currently only 2 wide lanes. That configuration will not change. This project will link up with the new bike lanes on Lawyers Rd, giving cyclists from the south a very good route leading toward the new Reston-Wiehle Avenue station on the Silver Line.

A big thank you to VDOT for having the vision to modify Soapstone and Lawyers, making both roads safer for everyone and creating dedicated bike facilities for cyclists.
