New pedestrian path for North Oak Street set for installation next week

N. Oak Street

West side of North Oak Street


During the week of May 10, weather permitting, the County will create a pedestrian pathway along the west side of North Oak Street between Clarendon Boulevard and 17th Street North.


Currently, there is no sidewalk on the west side of Oak Street. After receiving a request from the community, County staff conducted a traffic investigation for this location and determined that adding a pedestrian treatment would help improve safety and access.


The pedestrian pathway will be installed by adding a barrier between the travel lane and the curb. This will slightly narrow the southbound lane, but access for vehicles, including the driveway to the coffee shop, will be retained.


What to expect during this work:

  • Once installation begins on the pathway, we anticipate completion within 1 week.
  • The installation will be done during work hours, generally 8 am to 2 pm, Monday through Friday.
  • During installation, there may be some impacts to the southbound travel lane on North Oak Street.


Final draft of Vision Zero Action Plan

In February, we asked for feedback from the community, stakeholder groups, and partners on the draft Vision Zero Action Plan.


Thanks to everyone who provided comments! Your feedback told us the community largely agrees this Action Plan can improve safety for people traveling in Arlington.


The final draft of the five-year Action Plan will go to the County Board for consideration on May 15.
