Dolley Madison Corridor Study

Study News and Updates

Community Meeting Held June 13; Survey and Comments Deadline Extended to July 31, 2019

Dolley Madison Boulevard at Dulles Toll Road 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 will present a variety of options with traffic model analysis, and is looking for feedback from the public on the short-term and long-term improvements presented.

  • Dolley Madison Boulevard Corridor Study Presentation - June 13, 2019
  • 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: 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.)

Feedback is no longer being accepted via the Dolley Madison Corridor Study Survey as of July 31, 2019. You may reach out to the project team using the feedback form at the bottom of this page.
