What are the combined Dunn Loring and nearby ommunitiesasking for?
1. VDOT must work within the horizontal and vertical footprint agreed upon in the Preferred
• Proposed changes that exceed the footprint and negatively impact the combined Dunn Loring and nearby communities include:
• A ramp that is 30 feet over the Gallows bridge and Metro walkways affecting Metro, and businesses near Metro, Stenwood School and Dunn Loring residences
• New ramps at the 495/66 interchange requiring stormwater ponds in Dunn Loring neighborhoods and the removal of natural treeline barriers.
• Interchange design changes at Nutley that would require further land takings and increase safety and traffic flow concerns
2. Express Mobility Partners should be looking at ways to further reduce community impact such as:
• Reduction in property takings along the corridor, including Stenhouse Pl., Dunn Loring Woods and Stenwood School.
• Reducing the height of the 495/66 interchange.
• Relocating the WMATA utility station.
• Design alternatives included in the Do No Harm proposal
• Improvements to the safety and quality of pedestrian and bike pathways and protection of residences that will be negatively impacted by Gallows Rd. widening.
3. Additional study and information are needed on noise, stormwater, air quality and safety measures to understand the extent of impact on the quality of life in affected communities and how these impacts can be mitigated. This includes:
• Rationale for allowing large trucks and higher speed limits on express lanes.
• Plans for community sound walls
• Addressing ancillary road and noise and air quality disruption during construction.
• Safety at interchanges with ancillary roads and pedestrian and bike pathways.
