McLean Traffic Analysis Community Meeting Oct. 18
Second meeting to give input on potential pilot to mitigate neighborhood congestion at Georgetown Pike/I-495

Note: This is the new date for the Sept. 13 meeting that was postponed due to weather.


FAIRFAX
– Join the Virginia Department of Transportation and Fairfax County for a second community meeting Thursday, Oct. 18 on efforts to identify potential congestion solutions for neighborhoods near I-495 (the Capital Beltway). Stop by to learn more and provide input at 7 p.m. at McLean High School, 1633 Davidson Road, McLean, VA 22101. VDOT and County staff will give an update on input received since the first community meeting in early August, and be available to answer questions.

Over the last year, VDOT and the County have been working with residents as part of a traffic study to address neighborhood access and congestion concerns. The study examined potential short-term, intermediate, and long-term improvements. Recent short-term improvements made include additional signs, pavement markings, traffic cameras, and shoulder improvements for police enforcement.

VDOT and the county are seeking input on one of the proposals, a potential pilot project that would evaluate limiting access from Georgetown Pike to northbound I-495 during weekday afternoon/evening periods. The proposal would only move forward in design and schedule if enough support is received.

Visit the study page for more details and meeting materials. Residents and commuters are invited to send comments to meetingcomments@vdot.virginia.gov by Nov. 12, 2018 and include “McLean Area Traffic Analysis” in the subject line.
