Taylor Run at Janney's Lane Pedestrian Safety Improvements
The intersection of Janney's Lane and Taylor Run Parkway is a complex, multi-leg intersection with skewed pedestrian crossings and asphalt bump outs. Many pedestrians cross at this intersection on their way to nearby Douglas MacArthur Elementary School or to the eastbound and westbound bus stops located here. During the summer of 2013, Janney's Lane between Seminary Road and Cloverway was resurfaced and bicycle facilities were added to the roadway. Currently, the Taylor Run Sanitary Sewer Upgrade and Stream Restoration Project is underway and is scheduled for completion by November 2014.
In the spring of 2013, the community provided feedback to the City of Alexandria regarding their safety concerns at this intersection. Input has been provided at a public meetings with the College-Clover Park Civic Association and the Taylor Run Citizens' Association. The City has been moving forward with the concept level designs for pedestrian safety improvements at this location and presented the plans on July 10, 2014 at a meeting hosted by College Clover Park Civic Association. General consensus at the meeting was that the City should move forward with the proposed design and look into including additional improvements that were proposed by residents. The presentation from the meeting can be viewed here, and the proposed concept plan is shown below. To provide comments on the plan or submit questions regarding the design, send an email to the City's Complete Streets Coordinator.
