On March 8, 2022, City Council approved the formation of the Duke Street Transitway Advisory Group to assist City staff in the development of transit improvements for the corridor. The meetings are open to the public. For Zoom access, please use this link to register prior to each Advisory Committee meeting.
A direct link to the February 16th Advisory Group Meeting can be accessed here for virtual participation: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_mXAnVFaXSxO1qzc8G0cJWw. The meeting will also be held in person at the DASH Facility in the City of Alexandria.
This project is funded with Northern Virginia Transportation Authority regional revenues and is expected to begin construction in the next few years.
Duke Street is the City’s highest ridership transit corridor with almost 3,000 boardings a day. The Duke Street Transitway project will make Duke Street a premier transit corridor with faster and more reliable bus service and improved access to more comfortable bus stops. This project has been in the City’s plans since 2008 and the City is currently working to develop updated concept designs that not only improve transit in the corridor, but also make it a safer experience for all users, while enhancing green space. The Project Team is currently evaluating the following concepts and doing targeted outreach before presenting results from the Team’s analysis in the Spring:
|· Segment 1 (Ripley to Jordan): Center and Curb Running
· Segment 2A (Jordan to Wheeler): Hybrid and Mixed Traffic
· Segment 2B (Wheeler to Roth): Bidirectional and Mixed Traffic
· Segment 3: Center and Curb Running
· Center Running will still be considered in the long-term for Segment 2
