New Stop Sign Approved for Jamieson Avenue

New Stop Sign Approved for Jamieson Avenue

Carlyle Council had petitioned the City to request an all-way stop at the intersection of Jamieson Avenue and Englehardt Lane.  Traffic congestion along Jamieson Avenue from The Westin up to the traffic light at Dulany Street has been an ongoing problem particularly during the morning and evening rush hour.  The problem is due to a number of factors, including; vehicle traffic along Jamieson from cars getting off or entering 495 via Mill Road; office parking garages exit onto Jamieson from several buildings; Carlyle Towers residential parking garage is accessed from Englehardt Lane; and pedestrian traffic at Jamieson and Dulany intersection.   The Alexandria Parking and Traffic Board approved the request at their meeting on September 26th.
