Changes are coming to the Boundary Channel Drive and I-395 interchange, and with a public hearing on the plans set for Thursday.
VDOT is set to hold the virtual design public hearing at 7 p.m. tomorrow (Nov. 5) via Cisco Webex. It will discuss the agency’s plans “to upgrade the Boundary Channel Drive interchange at I-395 to improve safety, traffic flow and enhance accessibility and connectivity for bicyclists and pedestrians.”
Among the planned changes are:
- Reducing Boundary Channel Drive from four lanes to two
- Adding a ten-foot-wide path/sidewalk on either side of the road
- Installing roundabouts on either side of I-395
- Reconfiguring the highway ramps
- Adding crosswalks
- Creating a new shared-use path that links the Mount Vernon Trail to Long Bridge Park
“In lieu of an in-person hearing, VDOT invites residents and travelers to learn more, participate in the virtual hearing and give feedback,” the agency said in a press release. “Once the hearing is complete, the recorded presentation will be available online. Project materials and details are also available at virginiadot.org/BoundaryChannel.”
Comments on the plans are being accepted through Monday, Nov. 16.
The $20.4 million project is being paid for “with state (including Revenue Sharing), Arlington County and Northern Virginia Transportation Authority funding,” VDOT notes. The agency expects to start the process for selecting a design-build contractor this winter.
