Construction is expected to start in early 2012, says Robert Ayers, an engineer in the Fairfax County Department of Transportation who is overseeing the project. The new sidewalks will be only on the side of the street with ACCA (Annandale Christian Community Action).
The project, aimed at making Annandale more pedestrian friendly, also includes landscaping and ornamental streetlights.

This is the final phase of a revitalization effort that included an improved streetscape along John Marr Drive, Tollhouse Park, and other projects.
Funding for the sidewalks comes from county bonds and from a VDOT-administered, federally sponsored enhancement grant, says Ayers. Construction is expected to take about five months, depending on the weather.
