About the Study

This STARS (Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions) study is assessing potential safety and operational improvements for three miles of Route 50 (Arlington Boulevard) between Jaguar Trail and Wilson Boulevard (Route 613) in the Falls Church area of Fairfax County. 

Some of the potential improvements in the draft include:

  • Pedestrian enhancements at Jaguar Trail, the Thomas Jefferson Library area, Allen Street, Graham Road, Woodlawn Avenue, the area between Marshall Street and East Tripps Run Road, and Annandale Road.
  • Turn lane improvements at Allen Street, Graham Road and South Street.
  • Access management improvements along the corridor, including a widened median in the Thomas Jefferson Library area, and extended medians at Allen Street, Graham Road, the area between Marshall Street and East Tripps Run Road, and Annandale Road.

Route 50 averages just over 50,000 vehicles a day within the study limits.

Please note that this study does not set construction dates for any of the alternatives. The purpose of this study is to develop proposed improvements that localities can pursue for funding, and to consider including in their comprehensive plans.
