Supervisor John Foust and the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) held a community meeting on the Dolley Madison Corridor Study on Thursday, June 13, 2019, 7 p.m., at the McLean Community Center, 1234 Ingleside Avenue, McLean.
The purpose of the study is to analyze Dolley Madison Boulevard between the Dulles Toll Road and Old Dominion Drive and recommend solutions to improve traffic conditions. The team presented a variety of options with traffic model analysis, and requested feedback from the public on the short-term and long-term improvements presented.
Concept 1: Three continuous lanes on Dolley Madison Boulevard eastbound
Concept 2: Three continuous lanes on Dolley Madison Boulevard eastbound through Lewinsville Road/Great Falls Street
Concept 3/3A: Restricted left turns from Balls Hill Road and/or additional lanes on Lewinsville Road
Concept 4: Dolley Madison Boulevard and Old Dominion Drive partial jughandle
Concept 5: Exclusive left-turn lanes at Lewinsville Road/Great Falls Street
Concept 6: Three westbound travel lanes on Dolley Madison Boulevard
In addition, FCDOT is considering the option of interchanges and letting the public provide feedback on this longer-term plan. If there is support for (an) interchange(s), FCDOT would then work to explore this concept by evaluating different types of interchanges and conducting feasibility work.
Alternative 1: Provide interchange at Dolley Madison Boulevard/Lewinsville Road/Great Falls Street, with no changes to Dolley Madison Boulevard and Old Dominion Drive (Image provided for location only.)
Alternative 2: Provide interchanges at both Dolley Madison Boulevard/Lewinsville Road/Great Falls Street and Dolley Madison Boulevard/Old Dominion Drive. (Image provided for location only.)
The survey and comment deadline was extended to July 31, 2019. Please reach out to the project team using the feedback form at the bottom of this page.
FCDOT is conducting a traffic analysis between Tysons and downtown McLean. To address existing conditions, the team has evaluated short-term solutions that could be implemented in the next 10 or more years. The intersections evaluated in the study include:
Dolley Madison Boulevard and Great Falls Street and Lewinsville Road
Dolley Madison Boulevard and Old Dominion Drive
Dolley Madison Boulevard and Ingleside Avenue
Balls Hill Road and Lewinsville Road
Chain Bridge Road and Great Falls Street

FCDOT also is considering longer-term solutions that include interchanges at the Great Falls Street/Lewinsville Road intersection and the intersection with Old Dominion Drive.
The FCDOT team presented these options, traffic models, benefits and potential impacts at the meeting on June 13. The team is seeking feedback from the community regarding desired short- and long-term solutions.
