Note: A community meeting will be held Thursday, Aug. 2 at 7 p.m. at McLean High School, 1633 Davidson Road, McLean, VA 22101. VDOT is seeking the community's input on a potential pilot project to relieve neighborhood congestion.

Another community meeting is planned in the fall. Comment periods will follow both meetings. VDOT looks forward to partnering further with the community on this issue. 

About the Study

The Virginia Department of Transportation and Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) are evaluating potential solutions for congestion in North McLean, specifically at the intersection of Route 193 (Georgetown Pike) and Balls Hill Road, and in surrounding neighborhoods.

A variety of short- and long-term solutions are being evaluated, including solutions for residential street traffic and I-495 (Capital Beltway) access. Some of these ideas were presented to the public at a meeting in Sept. 18, 2017. A follow-up meeting was held May 9, 2018 where the latest developments were discussed. The meeting materials can be viewed below under "Resources."

Study Update

Nov. 29, 2017: The shoulder on Route 193 by the Balls Hill Road Intersection is complete. Fairfax County Police have begun enforcement in the area.
