Military Road at Nelly Custis Drive, Marcey Road and Gulf Branch trail/36th Road North
Status of intersection designs - June 2018
Design work is underway for the proposed intersection improvements at Military Road and Marcey Road and Military Road and 36th Rd North. We expect to have 15-20% draft designs for the community to review and provide feedback at our next public meeting.
We are also in the process of getting construction cost estimates for these two intersections. Once the County adopts its new Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), we will have updated budgets for these projects.
Next community meeting
The next public meeting will likely be held in fall 2018. As with our previous meeting, we will give notification via the civic associations and County’s communication channels (sign-up for our email update using the box on the right). Residents that cannot attend the meeting will be invited to submit feedback online through this project webpage.
About the Project
Military Road is a corridor included in the 2004 Arterial Transportation Management Study. The study suggested several recommendations to improve safety for all modes of transportation in this corridor.
Arlington County continues to make safety improvements at intersections with a high number of collisions, pedestrian crossings and transit boardings/exits. The proposed improvements at the intersections on Military Road (at Nelly Custis Drive, Marcey Road and 36th Road North) will improve safety for all users.

Project cost will be shared between Arlington County and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).
