McLean bicycle access recommendations

The final report of the McLean Pedestrian Task Force is now available online. Despite the name, the report includes recommendations for bicycle access in McLean. Their vision includes:
  • A bicycle-friendly downtown McLean that is complemented by safe bicycling routes from neighboring communities within a 3-mile radius
  • A McLean that bicycles to and from West Falls Church and the new Tysons Corner Metro Stations
  • A community in which motorists and bicyclists observe the rules of proper conduct
Recommendations include creating an uphill bike lane on Rt 123 from the North Glebe Road to George Washington Parkway, bike lanes on Route 123 from the George Washington Parkway to Tysons, signed bike routes on several local roads, and implementation of Safe Routes to School. See the complete list of bicycle recommendations.

As we noted earlier, several ped/bike projects identified in the report received funding, including signed bike routes.
