About the Study

This study is assessing potential safety and operational improvements for less than a mile of Route 50 (Arlington Boulevard) between Glebe Road and Fillmore Street in Arlington County. 

Currently, this segment of Route 50 experiences congestion in the morning and evening peak periods and a high number of crashes. Route 50 averages 62,000 vehicles a day within the study limits.

The concepts being studied will be based on public input and may include improving:

  • Traffic signal timing and operations
  • Turn lanes
  • Access management for properties and streets along the corridor

Other concepts being studied may also include turn restrictions, Innovative Intersections (potential examples include Quadrant Roadway and Restricted Crossing U-Turn), and pedestrian, bicycle and transit enhancements. 

Schedule
Begin Study - August 2019
First Public Information Meeting - November 2019
Second Public Information Meeting - Early 2020
Study Completion - Spring 2020
