What is a transitway, how will it change Duke Street, and how will it impact you?
Agenda Alexandria is pleased to announce its upcoming program on April 24, titled “What is a transitway, how will it change Duke Street, and how will it impact you?” The event will take place at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial at 7pm.
The Duke Street corridor is currently undergoing a radical transformation with a series of projects aimed to improve transit and mitigate traffic. During the program, Agenda Alexandria will explore these proposals and their potential impact on local businesses, residents, and commuters.
“We are excited to bring together members of the community to discuss this important issue,” said Rod Kuckro, Chair of Agenda Alexandria. “Duke Street is a vital artery for our city, and any modifications to its traffic pattern could have a significant impact on the community, especially with relocation of Alexandria Hospital to the Landmark site.”
The Alexandria Duke Street Transitway is being funded by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority through regional revenues. The city already received $75 million nearly 2 years ago for this project. Proposals will be brought up for consideration by the City Council as soon as this summer.
Even though the funding is already there, will the goal be achieved? How will these long-term developments be impacted by external factors of the quickly growing city?
What is the future of this corridor? Learn more about the options at the next Agenda Alexandria.
