Bike lanes in Reston Metro Access Group recommendations

The draft report of the Reston Metro Access Group was released at the February 26 meeting. Among the ped/bike priorities are several bike lanes near the Reston Parkway station. These are among the 1st Priority projects, listed on page 13 from Preliminary Prioritization of Improvements:
  • Bike lanes on Town Center Pkwy from Sunset Hills Rd to Baron Cameron Ave
  • Bike lanes on Sunset Hills Rd from Town Center Pkwy to Station Entrance
  • Construct bike trail on E side of Wiehle Ave from Station Entrance to Fairway Dr
  • Construct bike path from southern Wiehle Ave station entrance to Sunrise Valley Dr
  • Construct shared bus/bike lanes on the proposed Soapstone connector
  • Construct bike connection from W&OD trail to Bluemont Way at the Reston Town Center Transit Station
The draft documents can be found on the RMAG meeting page. We will be meeting with the consultant tomorrow morning to discuss the priorities and several projects that should be included in the list: Bike access along Soapstone Lane and Colts Neck Road, a grade-separated crossing of Reston Parkway on the south side of the Dulles Toll Rd, and others. The next meeting of the full group is scheduled for March 25.
