The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors greenlighted several road projects in the Annandale/Mason area, including improvements addressing pedestrian issues on Route 50 and congestion on Route 236 at Interstate-395, Beauregard Street, and Cherokee Avenue.
That freed up approximately $6.8 million for 11 pedestrian improvements along Route 50 between Jaguar Trail in Falls Church and Olin Drive in Seven Corners.
The county reallocated $500,000 to improve signage on the I-395 southbound off-ramp to Route 236 westbound. This project, aimed at addressing increased traffic at the Mark Center, will let drivers know they can use Quantrell Avenue to access Beauregard Street, Lincolnia Road, and the Landmark shopping plaza.
Another $700,000 million has been reallocated to build an exclusive northbound right turn lane from Cherokee Avenue onto Route 236. Both this project and the improved I-395 signage are part of the Mark Center spot improvements.
