On Wednesday, January 30, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the City of Alexandria will host a community meeting to share information about the progress made on recommendations that came from the Central Alexandria Traffic Study.

Staff from the Department of Transportation & Environmental Services will discuss the evaluation of pilot turn restrictions, confirm comments and seek any additional input for the Duke and Taylor Run Intersection Project, and go over the Smart Mobility program as part of the long-term recommendations of the Study.

There will be an open house portion from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., followed by a detailed presentation and then a question and answer session.

As a reminder, residents from four neighborhoods in Central Alexandria were represented on a task force that met between 2016 and 2018 to discuss strategies to mitigate increased traffic, speeding and safety concerns in their neighborhood. In May 2018, the City Manager released a memo to City Council outlining the short- and long-term recommendations of the Central Alexandria Traffic Study. The recommendations are based on feedback from the Task Force. The short-term recommendations included afternoon turn restrictions on certain streets, traffic calming measures and pedestrian safety upgrades. The proposed turn restrictions were presented to and approved by the Traffic and Parking Board at a public hearing on May 21, 2018.

The long-term recommendations included initiating a Complete Streets redesign of the intersection at Duke Street and West Taylor Run Parkway. The recommendations also included advancing several projects that have been recommended in the study area through previous planning efforts and longer-term policy recommendations for Council consideration.
