Comment on N Kings Hwy Intersection Improvements
proposed options and comment on how they impact bicycle access. Is there adequate bike access to destinations along North Kings Hwy? Comment period ends November 15.
From the North Kings Highway (VA 241) Intersection Improvements Study page:
The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is seeking to develop viable transportation improvements to address traffic issues and community concerns along North Kings Highway (VA 241) within the Penn Daw Community Business Center (CBC), including cut-through traffic, pedestrian safety and walkability.
For the last two years, FCDOT has been working with a transportation consultant to develop 4 intersection design options. Community input and feedback showed preference for 2 of the 4 proposed options (8C and 8D) which underwent a more detailed transportation analysis. Both options include:
- Removal of the existing traffic signal at North Kings Highway and School Stree.
- Conversion of School Street to a right-in/right-out access.
