Find out about plans to extend Frontier Drive (Route 2677) from its
southern terminus at Franconia-Springfield Parkway (Route 289) to
Loisdale Road (Route 789) to relieve congestion and improve access to
the Franconia-Springfield Metro station, the Springfield Mall and Town
Center area, the General Services Administration (GSA) complex and the
new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) building on Springfield
Center Drive. The project will include a four-lane divided roadway
(combination of new construction and improvements to existing Springfield
Center Drive) with a shared-use path on one side and sidewalk on the
other. The project will also include new braided ramps at the Frontier
Drive/Franconia-Springfield Parkway interchange, a new intersection at
Metro Access Road with Frontier Drive, reconfigured sections of the Metro
station circulatory road and access to parking garage entrances, but all
existing access points will be maintained.
The meeting will be held as a virtual/online meeting. Information for

presentation beginning at 7 p.m. and answer questions for about an hour
