VDOT looking for public feedback on improving Little River Turnpike/Duke Street

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is looking at making some improvements to Little River Turnpike, one of the main arterial roads between Alexandria and Fairfax County.

Little River Turnpike (Route 236) runs through the Lincolnia neighborhood of Fairfax County, turning into Duke Street when it crosses into the West End. A study of crashes on the street from 2015-2019 showed that many of the crashes were clustered around the border between Fairfax County and Alexandria, where Little River Turnpike crosses I-395.

A similar study of congestion on the street found that most of the congestion was centered on the western end of the study area, around the Annandale neighborhood.

Part of the project could involve pedestrian and cyclist improvements to the street and improve overall safety.

A survey to gather public input is available online until next Wednesday, July 28. A second outreach and survey is planned for this fall once solutions are outlined for the road.
