An online survey looking at ways to improve congestion and reduce crashes on Route 50 in Chantilly closes Monday (April 11).

The Virginia Department of Transportation is reviewing potential intersection improvements on a 1-mile segment between Chantilly Plaza and Plaza Lane, including at Lees Corner and Stringfellow roads.

The survey focuses on whether a left turn should be removed for westbound Route 50 traffic onto Lees Corner Road, among other changes.

The study is also considering removing a left-turn lane for eastbound Route 50 traffic onto Stringfellow Road.

The review is part of a Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions (STARS) study, an effort by VDOT to tackle short-term and affordable projects.

The study is expected to be completed this spring or summer. VDOT will then work with Fairfax County to identify funding to make improvements happen.

An initial study looked at nearly 2 miles of Route 50 between Route 28 and Stringfellow Road. A final report was delivered in March 2021.

The study carries an overall cost of $450,000, split between $317,000 for the first phase and $133,000 for the second, current phase.
