About the Project
The Lee Highway (Route 29) and Glebe Road (Route 120) Intersection Improvements project will implement safety, access, and travel time improvements for motorists, pedestrians, and transit riders at the intersection.
A traffic study conducted in 2004 identified considerable traffic backups at the Lee Highway and Glebe Road intersection. The backups resulted in traffic cutting through the neighborhood.
Anticipated improvements include:
- Installation of left-turn lanes for Glebe Road, which will ensure safer turning movements and reduce delays
- Wider sidewalks
- Upgraded traffic signals and new pedestrian signals
- Enhanced street lighting
- Undergrounding of utilities to improve accessibility and mobility
- Upgraded transit stops
- Landscaping (where possible)
County staff has met with various civic associations to share design plans. Comments received at these meetings have been incorporated into the design, along with feedback received from adjoining property owners during the easement acquisition process.
