The Wiehle Avenue Study originated from a Follow-On Motion authorized by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in response to the approval of the Campus Commons zoning application (RZ/FDP 2017-HM-018 and PCA 79-C-023). The objective of this study is to evaluate Wiehle Avenue’s multimodal operations since the opening of Phase II of Metrorail’s Silver Line and determine how to best transform this corridor from an auto-dominated suburban designed road to a multimodal urban designed street. This effort is expected to identify new and improved bicycle/pedestrian facilities and intersection treatments, as well as evaluate the potential reconfiguration of vehicular lanes and/or widths for current and future land use scenarios.
