Fund the long-standing plans to re-design the intersections at Lee Highway/George Mason Drive
and Lee Highway/Harrison Street.� Include a left turn lane from the two side
streets onto Lee Highway.
Include the full length of the neighborhood�s three arterial streets �
George Mason Drive,
and Harrison Street
-- in Arlington�s
new Arterial Street Traffic Calming program (Harrison Street from Lee Highway to N. 26th Street is one of the
program�s original selections).�
Possible options may include (but should not be limited to): a)
reducing George Mason Drive between Lee Highway and Yorktown Boulevard to 2-lanes
with wider medians and bike lanes; b) installation of a median and traffic
speed indicator warning on Yorktown Boulevard and reduction of the speed
limit to 25 mph; and c) installation of nubs at the Harrison Street
intersections with 26th Street, 27th Street, and Little
Falls Road (the Little Falls intersection is being considered for nubs as
part of a Neighborhood Traffic Calming project for Little Falls Road).
The Neighborhood Traffic Calming program has been used quite
successfully in this neighborhood to address traffic safety issues.� This program should be given adequate
funding to continue to address neighborhood traffic issues throughout Arlington.� Several additional candidate streets exist
in this neighborhood and should be considered for assistance, in particular:
26th Street N. west of Harrison Street; 28th Street N. between Yorktown Boulevard
and Greenbrier Park; N. Greenbrier Street north of 26th Street N.;
and N. Florida Street north
of 26th Street.� Consideration should also be given to
replacement of the existing speed humps on 26th Street N. between Harrison Street
and George Mason Drive
due to their deteriorating condition.
The following intersections should be evaluated for nubs, 3-way/4-way
stops or other appropriate safety improvements:�
N. and N.
N. at N. Harrison and at N. Greenbrier Street
N. at George
N. Brandywine Street at Yorktown Boulevard
N. at Yorktown
N. Florida Street at Little Falls Road
Old Dominion Drive
and 29th Street N.
Bus shelters should be considered at the following locations (trash
receptacles should also be provided):
Yorktown Boulevard at Yorktown High School
George Mason Drive
Additional locations on Lee
The County�s zoned parking program should be continued, along with
consideration of nighttime and weekend restrictions where appropriate.� Possible areas for consideration within the
neighborhood, based on request and approval by immediate residents, might
include streets adjacent to the following:
Marymount University, including increased
enforcement to encourage students not to park on neighborhood streets.
