Fairfax Co map tool for reporting storm-related problemsmapping tool that lets people report problems as a result of Hurricane Sandy. There are four types of problems that you can report: No Power, Trees Down, Flooded Road, Traffic Light Out. These problems affect cyclists. I hope that no one is riding today or tomorrow, although I'm sure there is someone who depends on using a bicycle to get to work who will ride. Over the next several days if you encounter any of the conditions above, why not use the interactive map to report them.
Fairfax should have a version of this mapping tool to allow cyclists to report bicycle-specific problems. FABB would be glad to compile the data and work with the county bike coordinator to find solutions.
Update: Here's another map from Fairfax County showing road closures.
