Duke Street & Route 1 High-Crash Intersection Audits
The purpose of this project is to improve safety at two intersections: Duke Street & South Henry Street, and Duke Street & South Patrick Street.
Collectively, there have been over 70 crashes at these two intersections since 2014. Of those, 4 resulted severe injury and more than 20 resulted in non-life-threatening injuries. Both intersections are ranked among the City’s high-crash intersections and are on the City's high-injury network.
The City’s adopted Vision Zero goal is to eliminate fatal and severe crashes. The City’s adopted Alexandria Mobility Plan also calls for prioritizing high-crash intersections and corridors for safety improvements.
In 2022, the City was awarded a technical assistance grant through the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG) Regional Roadway Safety Program to identify safety countermeasures and develop conceptual plans for future improvements.

Detailed Design & Construction
Status: Not Started
Note, the first phase of this project will result in conceptual designs for future safety improvements. For more complex or costly treatments, the City may request future grant funding to support detailed design and construction.
