Residents want better bike and ped access to Tysons

That was the consensus at two meetings held last night to discuss the impact of the redevelopment of Tysons. At the recording session for Kojo in Your Community, at the McLean Community Center, several residents mentioned the need for better bike and ped access from McLean to Tysons.

We noted that most cyclists choose not to use the most direct route into Tysons, Route 123, because of a lack of bike facilities. Another comment about needed better bike and ped access got a good round of applause. The show will air today at noon on WAMU 88.5 FM.

We also caught part of the Fairfax County meeting to discuss multi-modal transportation improvements in Tysons. Several participants discussed the challenges of getting around without a car and that we need much better bike accommodations to allow residents easier access to and through Tysons. The meeting began with a presentation on planned improvements followed by Q&A and small group discussions. Here's info about the meetings tonight and Thursday.
