Join us as we take you “Around Arlington” in Arlington TV’s regular round-up of news and notes from the County. In this edition, we highlight tips to beat the heat, detail the Tree Canopy Fund (and how it can help you plant trees), celebrate Arlington being named the No. 1 digital county in the county, provide an update on the Complete Streets program and look forward to the Arlington County Fair.
The Complete Streets projects, managed by the County’s Department of Environmental Services, are intended to improve safety and access for all users, pedestrians, transit riders, bikers, and motorists on noncommercial arterial streets, as well as improve street aesthetics, stormwater management and bioretention. Improvements could include:
- Sidewalk expansion or obstruction elimination
- Curb ramp reconstruction
- Crosswalk and signal enhancements
- Pedestrian-scale lighting
- Bike lanes
- Improved access to transit stops
