ALEXANDRIA, VA – Today the City released the news that as part of the City’s Smart Mobility Program, Alexandria is installing adaptive traffic signals that detect and respond to real-time travel conditions. “This technology will optimize traffic flow, decrease delays, and reduce stops along the Duke Street corridor,” says the press release.

The Adaptive Traffic Signal project will be split into two phases:

Phase 1: Install adaptive signals along the Duke Street and Van Dorn Street corridors by the end of 2024.

Phase 2: Expand the project to other high-congestion corridors throughout the City by the end of 2025.
