Access to Tysons Metro - Public meetings this week

Fairfax County is developing plans for multi-modal access of the future Metro stations in Tysons. Bicycling will be an important way for future Tysons residents, and people living nearby, to access the stations. The only parking available at the stations will be for bicycles. The county just completed work on the draft Tysons Bicycle Master Plan, and now cyclists need to speak out in support of the plan and bicycle access in general.

Several meetings are planned to hear from residents about how they want to access the future Metro stations in Tysons. From the county website: "Public meetings will be held to give stakeholders an opportunity to provide input on the study regarding the priority of multi-modal access improvements to the four new Metrorail Stations being constructed in Tysons Corner. Because there will be no daily or long-term parking at the stations, the study is focused on pedestrian, bicycle and bus service improvements. During these meetings you will have the opportunity to learn more about the project, ask questions of County staff and give your input on the priority of recommended multi-modal transportation improvements to access the four new Metrorail Stations in Tysons Corner.

I won't be able to attend, but my most urgent request is to provide access to the Tysons Metro (and indeed, to all of Tysons Corner) from the W&OD trail. My particular need is from the west, though obviously there are those coming from the east as well.
