Duke Street & Route 1 Intersection Safety Improvements
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.
