Locals can provide input on proposed road improvements near Tysons Corner Center at a meeting tonight (Wednesday).
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) have teamed up to provide residents the opportunity to speak directly with road engineers and transportation planners at a community meeting.
VDOT and FCDOT are considering a redesign of the connection between Gallows Road, Tysons One Place and Route 7, possibly creating a three-way stop condition at the intersection of Kidwell Drive and Tysons One Place to improve traffic flow.
The design also suggests creating a designated space for left-turning vehicles and bike lanes in both directions on Kidwell Drive, which would complete the designated bike route between the Washington and Old Dominion Trail and downtown Tysons.
A separate proposal would stripe parking lanes where parking is allowed along West Street.
The meeting is set to start at 6 p.m. at the Providence Community Center at 3001 Vaden Drive in Fairfax.
The comment period for the proposal ends on April 3. Paving work will then start later that month and end in November.
