Bicycle Program
  • On-Road Bike Lane Initiative
    • FCDOT and VDOT are developing new bike lane projects as part of the 2011 summer repaving program.
    • Routes under consideration include: Soapstone Drive, Sleepy Hollow Road, Lewinsville Road, Sully Park Drive, and Route 123 (Dolly Madison Drive).
    • Plans for Gallows Road Phase II Bike Lanes, funded by 2007 County Bonds, were finalized and construction is anticipated in late 2011.
  • Increase and Enhance Bicycle Parking
    • 150 new bicycle racks and 30 new bicycle lockers were purchased and are currently being installed countywide.
    • In coordination with Comstock Partners, FCDOT is designing a "state of the industry" secure bicycle parking room at the proposed Reston-Wiehle Ave. Station including 200 spaces, bicycle retail use, and future bicycle sharing.
    • Stringfellow Road Park-and-Ride Lot expansion is under design, including secure, covered bicycle parking for over 100 bikes and enhanced trail and sidewalk connections.
    • Fairfax County bicycle parking guidelines, standards, and specifications will be released soon, providing guidance to developers and government agencies.
  • Bicycle Master Plan
    • Phase I focuses on the greater Tysons area including segments of McLean, Merrifield, and Vienna, and will go before the PC and BOS in late 2011.
    • Phase II will encompass the rest of Fairfax County. Work began in April 2011, with a study duration of 18 months.
  • Bobann Drive Bikeway
    • One mile of paved, 10-foot wide shared use path from Wharton Lane to Stringfellow Road, providing access to the expanded Stringfellow Road Park-and-Ride Lot.
  • Bike the Sites Map
    • FCDOT is creating a family-friendly bicycle route map centered around historic sites in the western area of the County.
    • Funded with a Federal Transportation Enhancement grant, the project is scheduled for completion in 2011.
  • Bicycle Route Signage
    • Routes include three locations in the Dranesville District, the Fairfax County Parkway, and the GMU-Fairfax City-Vienna Metrorail Station Bike Route
  • Outreach, Education and Events
    • FCDOT, with private sector and County agencies, continues to sponsor the region's "Bike to Work Day" with nine pit stop locations within the County.

Thanks for letting me know the link was broken. I think the county must have changed it after it was initially posted. It should work now.
