Corridor: Dulles, Route 7,
Leesburg Park and Ride. With at least 300 spaces, the park-and-ride will connect with the Silver Line, reducing the number of cars on the region’s highway system.
Interchange at Leesburg Bypass, Edwards Ferry Road.
This would enhance regional traffic flow by eliminating an at-grade, signalized intersection on an important north-south connector that experiences significant congestion.
Loudoun County transit buses. This would finance two 40-foot transit buses at $440,000 each to introduce Silver Line connecting service from a new park-and-ride along Tall Cedars Parkway. That would reduce the number of car commuter trips and provide access to Metrorail.
Parkways, Belmont Ridge, Gum
Belmont Ridge Road widening. The road north and south of the Dulles Greenway along the western boundary of Ashburn would be widened from two to four lanes, reducing congestion for both commuters and school traffic. An at-grade intersection with the Washington and Old Dominion Trail would be eliminated, improving safety.
Corridor: Route 28
Route 28 hot-spot improvements. Design improvements at the Dulles Toll Road and at Sterling Boulevard, north of the toll road, would ease congestion in a segment where traffic is stop and go during the morning rush.
Route 28 widening from McLearen Road to Dulles Toll Road. The project would provide an additional northbound lane along a corridor that serves three counties.
Route 28 widening from Dulles Toll Road to Route 50. The project would add a fourth lane southbound.
Corridor: I-66, routes 29, 50
Pedestrian signal improvement, City of Falls Church.
The project installs pedestrian signals at the intersection of East Columbia Street and North Washington Street, within a mile of the East Falls Church Metro station. Adding pedestrian and bike enhancements such as this is meant to increase accessibility for Metrorail.
Chain Bridge Road widening, City of Fairfax. This project improves vehicular and pedestrian mobility in the vicinity of Route 123 and Route 29/50 and eliminates roadway flooding.
Corridor: I-95, 395, Route 1, VRE, Metrorail
Blue/Silver Line mitigation in Arlington County. Buys four Arlington Transit (ART) buses as a short-term measure to moderately increase ART’s north-south bus capacity, coinciding with the opening of the Silver Line, the new Metrorail route that already is affecting Blue Line commuters.
Boundary Channel Drive interchange. Arlington County proposes to redesign the interchange with I-395 to improve traffic flow in Northern Virginia’s most congested area.
Shelters and real-time transit information. This project would fund the replacement and expansion of DASH and Metro bus shelters at high-ridership locations throughout Alexandria.
