The city will hold a public meeting on the proposed Fall Hill Avenue widening project from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Lafayette Upper Elementary School.

The meeting will include information on the project designs and residents will be able to give comments on it.

The project, broken into phases, will include widening the western portion of Fall Hill Avenue to four lanes, joining the section that already has been widened. Sidewalks and a trail also will be added, and the bridge spanning Interstate 95 will be replaced.

Mary Washington Boulevard also will be extended to connect with Fall Hill near the Rappahannock Canal bridge.

The project’s preliminary schedule calls for construction to begin about mid-2015 and could take two years to finish.
