The Rosslyn Business Improvement District (BID) is partnering with Arlington County to conduct a long-term transportation study for Rosslyn that is considering more significant alterations to the street grid, such as making Lynn Street and North Fort Myer Drive two-way streets and making 18th Street pedestrian-only. This long-term study is slated to begin in spring 2017.
In the interim, the Rosslyn BID and Arlington County are engaging the community on how we can make quick and easy short-term changes to Rosslyn intersections that will improve traffic and pedestrian flow. We also want to enhance safety, make the neighborhood more attractive, and make better use of "dead spaces," such as traffic islands.
More than 900 people responded to a survey conducted in March 2017 that asked them questions about how they get around Rosslyn and which intersections they feel are difficult to navigate, or that seem uncomfortable or unsafe. The results, coupled with outcomes from a March 4, 2017, community transportation workshop, will help determine priority, short-term improvements. The goal is to begin implementing these changes by fall 2017. Check back here for updates.
