Resurfacing Projects for Complete Streets – 2020 Season




Staff have reviewed the annual list of projects up for routine maintenance and identified a subset of streets for potential projects. Community feedback about current experiences with the street segments, along with other available data, such as plan guidance and crash data, helped inform the development of concept designs. Community feedback on the concept designs helped refine the final concepts, which will be implemented in Summer/Fall of 2020.

About the Project

Complete Streets “enable safe access by all user groups including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit vehicles and users, and motorists of all ages and abilities.” One of the ways Arlington County delivers on the Master Transportation Plan Complete Streets policy is to review the annual list of streets up for routine maintenance and identify those that might benefit from improvements to provide safe access for all people using the street.

  • Early Spring 2020 – Staff shares information on the potential projects and asks community members to share their experiences on these streets.
    • Staff will use public feedback, existing plan guidance and other data to develop concept plans unique to the conditions at each location.

About the Process

Final Plans Informed by Your Feedback - July 2020

In April, we asked you to share your location-specific issues and concerns about the street segments today. Those comments, along with other available data, such as plan guidance and crash data, helped staff create concept designs.

In June, we shared concept designs informed by your comments and asked for additional location-specific feedback. We also asked you to help us evaluate the concept designs based on the project goals of increasing safety and access for all road users. This second round of feedback helped us refine the development of the final concepts shared here.
