Huntington Avenue/Richmond Highway Intersection Study

2016 Proffer Reform Bill - Exempt Area
Tax Map Parcel:
83-3 ((1)) 70
On September 25, 2018 the Board of Supervisors authorized a Comprehensive Plan amendment to study the planning intersection improvements at Huntington Avenue/Richmond Highway (adjacent to tax Map Parcel No. 83-3 ((01))70) in the Mount Vernon Planning District, Mount Vernon Supervisor District.
The adopted Transportation Plan recommends a full interchange improvement at the intersection of Huntington Avenue and Richmond Highway, subject to further study. The Board adopted new guidance for the Richmond Highway Corridor March 2018 that promotes a safe, walkable, pedestrian-friendly environment and the planning improvements may not be compatible with the vision for the area as a gateway to Fairfax County and the Huntington Community. The above mentioned Board authorization requests that staff consider an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan for the intersection of Huntington Avenue/ Richmond Highway to assess the removal of the planned full interchange and provide suitable alternatives that are more in harmony with the land use planning for the immediate are and accomplish the goal of creating a gateway development.
This Plan Amendment is concurrent with Plan Amendment 2018-IV-MV5 which is undergoing a transportation analysis in coordination with the Virginia Department of Transportation.
