Virtual Public Information Meeting Sept. 28 on Route 50 Chantilly Study
Participate and give feedback online; learn more at virginiadot.org/Route50ChantillyStudy

CHANTILLY – The Virginia Department of Transportation will hold a virtual public information meeting Tuesday, Sept. 28 on a STARS (Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions) study that is assessing potential innovative intersection improvements along Route 50 (Lee Jackson Memorial Highway), including partial median u-turns at Lees Corner Road and Stringfellow Road (Route 645), as well as assessing potential safety improvements for side street intersections along the Route 50 service road.  This is being done as a result of public feedback received from the study’s first phase, which assessed potential safety and operational improvements for nearly two miles of Route 50 between Route 28 (Sully Road) and Stringfellow Road.

Route 50 averages 71,000 vehicles a day within the study limits based on 2019 data.
