VDOT to Begin Cottage Street Reconstruction

State to fund $1.2 million project on 0.3 mile stretch between Walker, Patrick streets

Drivers who use Cottage Street on their commute will be redirected, as the Virginia Department of Transportation begins reconstruction work Wednesday.

Contracted crews from Fort Myer Construction will begin work Wednesday on a 0.3 mile stretch of Cottage Street, between Walker and Patrick streets, for new sidewalk, curb and gutter, entrances, drainage, utilities, sign replacement, asphalt pavement and pavement markings, according to VDOT.

Drivers should follow a detour via Cedar Lane, Park Street and Kingsley Road. Cottage Street will remain accessible to local drivers.

VDOT is funding the $1.2 million project, which is scheduled for a July 2013 completion date.

The Town of Vienna twice readjusted its original request in 1995, which asked for reconstruction on Cottage Street from Moore Avenue to Cedar Lane, because of limited available funding.  

VDOT and the Town of Vienna will host a "Pardon Our Dust" meeting for residents and drivers 6 p.m. today at Vienna Town Hall.
