In May 2021, the Arlington County Board adopted a strong, interdisciplinary, data-driven Action Plan that prioritizes improving processes to place street safety at the center of all processes that affect the street. Rather than a punch list of actions, the plan commits staff to continuously analyzing recent crashes & working to solve the underlying causes of those crashes wherever they may occur in the County. It provides a framework and path forward for important underlying improvements in crash data collection & analysis and provides a home base for capital programs & quick build tactical programs focused on safety.LEARN MORE

This project will bring a 10' wide, 2-way protected bike lane to Army Navy Drive, along with dedicated bus lanes, crossing improvements, and right-sized travel lanes to reduce speeding.LEARN MORE

In February of 2022, they announced that several intersections along Langston Boulevard would also be returned to automatic operations. This move improves safety and speeds up walking trips!LEARN MORE
