Project Summary

Reconstructing a busy street at the heart of a major regional crossroads is always going to present significant challenges. Lynn Street, in Arlington County, VA has the added complexities of crossing a capped interstate freeway and an underground Metrorail line while the surface street itself carries tens of thousands of commuters in cars and buses, as well as bicyclists and pedestrians on a major regional trail, between Arlington County and Washington, DC. Toole Design worked with the County, from the concept phases through final design and construction, to re-envision Lynn Street as a world-class, multimodal corridor. Scheduled for completion in 2019, the Lynn Street Esplanade features new bikeways, an expanded multi-use path, high quality streetscapes, public art, and safer intersections throughout for people walking and biking.
