Pedestrian and Bicycle Access

During construction, access to the pedestrian and bicycle routes will be provided via the route shown on the Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Map on the project website. These designated pedestrian access routes will be marked with signage and traffic control devices. Please stay within the designated pedestrian access routes. These routes may vary slightly during construction, specifically at Daniel Drive, Braddock Trail, and the Diffley Marketplace Entrance.

Next Week Access Changes:

  • Due to increased construction activity at the Braddock Trail/Diffley Road intersection, pedestrians and bicyclists should exercise extra caution when traveling in the area. Those crossing Diffley Road at Braddock Trail should follow signs to the delineated crossing location. This location may change as work progresses through the intersection and could move throughout the day.
  • There will be additional construction activities at the school parking lot and Diffley Marketplace entrances. Pedestrians and bicyclists should exercise extra caution when traveling in the area.
