About the Project
Improvements to Wilson Boulevard were identified in the Virginia Square Sector Plan, adopted by the County Board in 2002.
Between 2009 and 2019. the County completed three previous phases (North Quincy Street to North Kenmore Street) of the Wilson Boulevard Improvements project.
Project elements for all phases include:
- New curb and gutter
- ADA-compliant sidewalks
- Traffic signal improvements
- Carlyle-style streetlights
- Street trees
- Storm sewer upgrades/improvements
- New asphalt paving, signing and markings

The project’s final east phase is in the early design phase. It is being coordinated with a utility undergrounding project that will bury utility lines in this area. The final phase of the streetscape improvements will begin construction after completion of the utility undergrounding project.
Updates have been presented to the Lyon Village, Lyon Park, Ashton Heights and Clarendon Courthouse civic associations since 2011, and notification updates were provided throughout the design process.
Staff provided an update at the Ashton Heights Civic Association meeting in January 2018.
Project updates continue to be provided to residents and the business community.
This project is locally funded.
