Washington Boulevard between North McKinley Road and North Frederick Street, with a one block segment between North McKinley Road and North Longfellow Street where brick pavers must be removed.
County staff are reviewing restriping options and seeking public feedback. Please share your thoughts via an online feedback form, open until March 31.
About the Project
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will be repaving the segment of Washington Boulevard between North McKinley Road and North Frederick Street as a part of routine repaving work in summer 2019.
As part of the repave, VDOT will remove the brick paver centerline and the brick paver crosswalks at Westover (between North McKinley Road and North Longfellow Street). Brick pavers at crosswalks and in medians are currently being phased out in Arlington County because the materials are costly to repair and require frequent maintenance.
To use the space currently occupied by the brick pavers in the median, the County is considering several restriping options, including high visibility crosswalks, bike treatments, and a limited change option. The goal is to provide better access to the Westover Library, Post Office and retail areas.
County staff are collecting feedback from the community on which restriping options to include, once the street is repaved, in order to enhance Westover’s accessibility for people who walk, bike and drive.
About the Process
Arlington County held an open house at the Westover Library on Wednesday, February 27. Community members were able to learn more, review restriping options, talk with staff and share feedback.
