The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is proposing to upgrade the Boundary Channel Drive at I-395 interchange. Improvements include reducing Boundary Channel Drive from four lanes to two in order to construct a ten-foot-wide sidewalk along eastbound Boundary Channel Drive and a ten-foot-wide shared-use path along westbound Boundary Channel Drive. The project also includes new roundabouts on Boundary Channel Drive just west and east of I-395 to improve safety and traffic flow, reconfiguring the ramps between I-395 and Boundary Channel Drive, and new crosswalks along Boundary Channel Drive. The project also features a new shared-use path linking the Mount Vernon Trail to Long Bridge Park. This project will involve changes and/or breaks in limited access control.
A Virtual Design Public Hearing is scheduled for Thursday, November 5, 2020 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. and will provide an opportunity for residents and organizations to ask questions and give VDOT comments and/or suggestions on the proposed project. Information for accessing and participating in the meeting is posted on the project website (http://www.virginiadot.org/BoundaryChannel).
