STV, RK&K to consult for Fairfax BRT

Posted on June 13, 2017

Engineering and construction firms STV and RK&K have joined to provide program management consulting for the proposed Fairfax County bus rapid transit (BRT) system serving the Richmond Highway Route 1 corridor.

STV and RK&K aim to consult on the development of station, vehicle, and guideway design, as well as prepare a financial implementation program.

The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation conducted the Route 1 Multimodal Alternatives Analysis in 2015, signalling a need for major improvement projects on the Richmond Highway over the next 10 to 25 years.

The bus rapid transit project is among the first wave of improvements, working to connect approximately 2,000 households located within half a mile of the Richmond Highway without an automobile. The BRT is planned to connect to major employment and shopping centers, as well as residential areas. Proposed amenities include pedestrian and bicycle accommodations.

The amount of stations that will be placed along the Richmond Highway has yet to be determined, pending completion of environmental and design phases of the project, and may be subject to public input.
