 Dear Resident,

 Arlington County staff will provide updates for two important projects, the Williamsburg Boulevard Green Street and the Old Dominion Drive Pedestrian Safety Improvements, on Wednesday, June 13th, 2012 from 7pm to 9pm at the Williamsburg Intermediate School Cafeteria.

Williamsburg Boulevard Green Street

The final design and a potential construction schedule for the median improvement project planned for Williamsburg Boulevard between Old Dominion Drive and 35th Street N. will be presented.

 Planned improvements include a new median curb, improved intersections, new canopy trees between Old Dominion Drive and 33rd Road and between 34th Road and 35th Street N, and two1,000 square foot rain gardens between 33rd Road N and 34th Road N. Rain gardens, also called bioretention, are landscaped basins that slow and clean storm water helping to protect our local streams. The streetscape improvements are being implemented as part of the County’s Green Streets initiative and were identified in the Watershed Retrofit Plan for Little Pimmit Run (Little Pimmit Watershed Retrofit Study Page:
