Re: Silverbrook Road & Southrun Road traffic signal study request
Dear Delegate Albo,
This is a follow-up response regarding your constituent’s request for a traffic signal study at the referenced intersection.
The Virginia Department of Transportation conducted a study of this intersection to consider both a traffic signal and multi-way stop control in 2008. The results of the study did not support the installation of either device.
Among the findings of the study were a number of rear-end type crashes involving east bound vehicles. The study recommends installation of an east bound left turn lane to address this issue. We have forwarded this recommendation to the Fairfax County Department of Transportation for consideration in their Six Year Secondary System Construction Program.
Please contact me should you have further questions or concerns regarding this issue.
