Vienna Town Council to Talk Maple Avenue Transportation Ideas Tonight

Proposed ideas for how to improve transportation along the Maple Avenue area are set to be discussed at the Vienna Town Council’s work session tonight (Monday).

Town staff is slated to present recommendations from the Maple Avenue Multimodal Study — a study by Kimley-Horn meant to suggest near- to mid-term solutions regarding transportation along the corridor.

“Staff expects a draft of the final report from Kimley-Horn the week of Dec. 9,” according to town documents.

According to town documents, the staff’s top priority recommendations include:

  • redesigning the intersection of Church and Mill streets
  • redesigning the W&OD Trail crossings at Maple Avenue, Church Street and Park Street
  • changing crossing signals so pedestrians have extra time to cross
  • adding a local circulator route between Maple Avenue and Church Street destinations
  • installing  concrete sidewalks along segments of Church Street, Glyndon Street and Courthouse Road

Additionally, the staff would like to see the following studies and strategies done:

  • study of parking supply and demand
  • traffic impact analysis guidelines
  • Bicycle Master Plan to develop a bicycle network for the town
  • Streetscape Master Plan and Design Guidelines

The Vienna Town Council is expected to provide feedback on the list of projects to staff.
