Drivers in Arlington know that the convergence of Wilson, Clarendon and Washington Boulevards is a real headache spot, but it appears that upgrades to the nasty intersection could start soon.
Arlington County Supervisors on Saturday will vote on a $2.5 million contract for improvements to Clarendon Circle. Ardent Company was selected out of five bidders for the project.
According to the contract, the project calls for a widening of Washington Boulevard to four lanes. There will also be new curb ramps and curb extensions, pedestrian signals and other upgrades to make the area safer for pedestrians. The project also calls for new bike lanes and better striping and biking alignments.
Construction could begin by the end of the summer with completion by the winter of 2020.
