About the Study
This STARS (Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions) study is assessing potential operational, safety and accessibility improvements for about four miles of Route 236 (Little River Turnpike) between I-495 in Annandale and I-395 in Alexandria.
The study is assessing existing traffic and safety conditions along Route 236 (Little River Turnpike) and congestion that occurs during morning and evening peak periods. The study team solicited public input regarding corridor priorities during the first round of virtual public involvement in June and July. This feedback is being used to help develop potential operational, safety and accessibility alternatives that will be evaluated and presented during the second round of virtual public involvement planned for later this fall.
Route 236 (Little River Turnpike) averages up to 55,000 vehicles a day within the study limits.
