Comment on N Kings Hwy Intersection Improvements

Fairfax County is proposing major changes to the southern section of North Kings Highway near Route 1. Cyclists familiar the area are encouraged to review the 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.
The below presentation shows the proposed options 8C and 8D in more detail, as well as the measures of effectiveness for both alternatives (including travel times). Please review and use the comment form to submit your feedback on these alternatives online by Nov. 15, 2015.
