Note: A community meeting was held May 9.

An I-495 Auxiliary Lane Study was developed to analyze the potential removal of the Inner Loop shoulder lane (from Old Dominion Drive to the George Washington Memorial Parkway) and its effect on traffic flow and operations.

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 on Sept. 18, 2017. 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.
