    The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) welcomes you to the first virtual public information meeting webpage for the Route 50 STARS Safety and Operational Improvements Study - Chantilly. The meeting will be held Tuesday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. (in case an alternate date is needed, the meeting will be held Wednesday, Oct. 6 at the same time), register here. Please note: Google Chrome or Firefox is recommended for this platform.

    Find out about a STARS (Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions) study that in its first phase assessed potential safety and operational improvements for nearly two miles of Route 50 (Lee Jackson Memorial Highway) between Route 28 (Sully Road) and Stringfellow Road (Route 645). Based on public feedback from the first phase, the second phase is further assessing potential innovative intersection improvements, including partial median u-turns, at Lees Corner Road and Stringfellow Road. The second phase is also assessing potential safety improvements for side street intersections along the Route 50 service road.

    VDOT will hold a virtual Public Information Meeting on Wednesday, September 29, 2021, beginning at 6:30 p.m. to present the latest updates and information related to the 495 NEXT Project.

    The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will provide information on its New American Legion Bridge I-270 to I-70 Traffic Relief Plan, which includes proposed project improvements in Virginia near the George Washington Memorial Parkway and across the American Legion Bridge into Maryland. Learn more about the project, environmental review status, and process moving forward. Project information can also be found at 495-270-p3.com.
