There is going to begin a boom in development and construction in West Falls Church. In this boom, steps will also be taken to improve safety and ease congestion. On Monday 26 August, the groundbreaking ceremony of the West Falls Church Transportation Project was held near the intersection of Haycock Road and West Broad Street/Virginia Route 7.
David Snyder, a member of both the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority and the Falls Church City Council said, “The plan is to actually implement significant transportation improvements even while development is occurring, as opposed to what’s happened all too often in this region, which is the development occurs and then folks think about the transportation later.”
According to wtop.com, “Immediate improvements will include installing Falls Church’s first high-intensity pedestrian-activated crosswalk on Haycock Road to improve access to and from the George Mason High School campus. In addition, the project will create medians, widen sidewalks, install lighting and improve bus stops and bicycle access near the school.
Traffic signals will be installed or replaced and synchronized at or near the Chestnut Street and West Broad/Route 7 intersection; the Haycock and West Broad/Route 7 intersection; and the intersection of Haycock and the schools’ access road.
The project is being done in close coordination with other entities, including Fairfax County.”
Snyder further stated, “The West Falls Church Metro property, the [Virginia Tech and Virginia] universities’ property, and the city’s 9 1/2 acres are all stated for coordination and development in the near future. This is a major new project, which is in the intermediate transportation planning stage.”
