New bike signage in McLean

Earlier this month approximately 80 bike route signs were installed throughout the downtown area of McLean providing directions and information. The signage was the product of the Fairfax County bicycle coordinator, FABB members, and other cyclists. Dranesville Supervisor Foust was instrumental in getting funding for purchasing and installing the signs.

Bike route directions are provided to the new Silver Line Tyson-McLean station, and the West Falls Church station. The signage also directs cyclists toward the W&OD trail, Arlington and more. This is one of the first installations of wayfinding signage in Fairfax County based on new bicycle sign standards.

Thanks to Supervisor Foust for supporting this project, to the county bike program staff, and to McLean cyclists who advocated for the signs, especially FABB's Dennis Frew, who provided much of the above information. We hope this is just the beginning of a comprehensive network of signed bike routes throughout the county.
