City Staff - Urban Planner

Dear Jen - Thank you for your comments and questions related to the Corridor B (Duke Street) transitway. The recommended long term transitway design and operation (to be reviewed by Council at its June 16 meeting) does not remove the existing access roads. All existing access roads will continue to be available for residents and businesses upon completion of the transitway. The long term proposed design would add a fifth (center) lane along Duke Street between Jordan Street and Wheeler Avenue. The proposed concept has not yet been developed to a detailed design level, and additional detailed analysis will be required to examine issues such as access to and from side streets and driveways. As part of that analysis, the City would identify the best operation for access into and out of side streets and driveways that addresses access and safety.

Dear Mr. Cavanaugh
Thank you for your comments. We appreciate you taking the time to review our project and provide input. We will consider your recommendations as we move forward in selecting a recommended alternative for Corridor C. While we initially considered various alignment options for Corridor C, those that were selected were determined to provide the best connectivity to existing major activity centers and transit facilities and future planned growth areas. Ultimately, the corridors we are planning for may extend beyond the City of Alexandria. We are coordinating with both Arlington and Fairfax Counties, and have representatives from both jurisdictions as part of our project team. Regarding your comment on Sanger Avenue, we are assuming that the overpass will remain, and signal phasing will be used at that location for transit. If Sanger Avenue is relocated as part of the Beauregard redevelopment, the new roadway would be planned for a future transitway.

Dear Mr. Cavanaugh
Thank you for your comments and suggestions. They have been forwarded to the consultant, and will be taken into consideration as we proceed with further analysis of alternatives. We are coordinating with Arlington and Fairfax Counties and have invited representatives from those jurisdictions to be a part of the planning process.
