VDOT Multimodal Transportation Investments hearing

This year the Six-Year Improvement Program public hearings are being billed as a chance to "Comment on Multimodal Transportation Investments, Your Transportation Dollars at Work." The meeting will be held at VDOT Northern Virginia District Office 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030. 6-6:30 p.m, Open House, 6:30 Moderated public meeting.

This is a chance to tell the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) how you think they should be spending our transportation dollars. The car lobby will be there to promote spending more money on the "I-66 corridor (inside and outside the Beltway), the Bi-County and Tri-County Parkways, [widening] Routes 1, 7, 9 and 15, as well as new Potomac River bridges."

We'll be asking for more funds to improve bike conditions in Northern Virginia, including funding the recommendations of the Tysons Bicycle Master Plan, improved maintenance, implementing the Bicycle Policy Plan, and providing bike facilities on major roads that cyclists are forced to use since our neighborhoods don't connect. It would be good for the CTB to hear from some new voices. If you can't attend the meeting, you can send comments to Six-YearProgram@VDOT.Virginia.Gov. You can see all Fairfax projects in the plan by visiting the Six-Year Plan database, selecting District: Northern Virginia and Jurisdiction: Fairfax County.
