Meeting to Tackle Impacts of Future Development on Maple Avenue Mobility, Access

People in the Town of Vienna can learn about how future development might change access to the Maple Avenue area at a meeting tomorrow (Wednesday).

The meeting will focus on how “reasonably anticipated” development through 2030 via the Maple Avenue Commercial (MAC) zone and by-right projects could change traveling along the Maple Avenue corridor, according to the event description.

The meeting is the second one connected to the town’s Maple Avenue Corridor Multimodal Transportation & Land Use Study, which was commissioned to look at transportation needs along Maple Avenue from James Madison Drive to Follin Lane. The study area also includes Church Street from Lawyers Road to East Street as well as Courthouse Road and Locust Street.

A meeting in April summarized the current transportation conditions in the study’s area.

The third — and final — phase of the study will evaluate possible strategies to improve accessibility challenges along the corridor.

“Transportation recommendations could include changes to vehicular access, geometric and operational modifications to specific intersections or locations, transit service improvements, enhancements to bicycle and pedestrian networks, and transportation demand management policies and strategies,” according to the Town of Vienna.

Recommendations from the study, which is being done by Kimley-Horn, a firm that provides transportation, planning and engineering consulting, are expected later this summer, according to the town.

The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Hall Council Chambers (127 S. Center Street) and will include small-group activities and discussion.
