City Considers Adding Lanes to Duke Street

ALEXANDRIA, VA. - On the heels of a controversial decision to reduce vehicle lanes and add bicycle lanes and more safety measures to Seminary Road, Alexandria City staff are starting to take a serious look at Duke Street, including adding lanes in areas that experience the most significant backups.

Duke Street is the heaviest traveled of the east-west throughways in Alexandria. Thousands of drivers use it to access I-95 off of Telegraph Road, and backups on Duke Street eastbound in the evenings are common. Residents who live on West Taylor Run Parkway, the College Park neighborhood and Quaker Lane have long complained about cut-through traffic that makes it nearly impossible for them to get home some evenings.

Duke Street was part of the Transitway Corridor Feasibility Study the City completed back in 2012, which builds on the 2008 City Council-adopted Transportation Master Plan, which itself is up for review.
