Hunter Mill District Transportation Updates

Resources:

VDOT Information Regarding Weihle Avenue Striping Project:
VDOT’s Traffic Engineering group investigated several safety concerns brought up by residents who live near Weihle Avenue and found that during a five-year period, 34 crashes had occurred near the intersections with Inlet Court and Fairway Drive. The next step was to find a way to improve safety/operations and the decision was made to restripe the left lane at the two locations.

By striping left turn lanes at Inlet Court and Fairway Drive, only in the northbound direction, VDOT will reduce the opportunity for T-bone crashes, enhance the safety of traffic turning onto Wiehle and provide a median lane for police enforcement. After checking traffic signal models, this change will not reduce the volume of vehicles going northbound, since the capacity of the roadway at the signals is not being changed.

Once the striping projects are implemented, VDOT will continue to monitor traffic conditions so if there are issues, they can be rectified.

Fox Mill and Pinecrest Roads Project:
There is a proposal to add a traffic light at the intersection of Fox Mill and Pinecrest roads due to community safety concerns. Get the history and where we are now: www.virginiadot.org/projects/northern-virginia/fox-mill-pinecrest.asp. Comments/questions are being accepted.

Hunter Mill Road Bridge over Colvin Run:
Replacement of the one lane bridge on Hunter Mill Road is moving forward - learn more. A public meeting will be held as soon as safely  possible and within federal guidelines. Comments/questions are being accepted.
