Comment on US Bike Route 1 study

VDOT is conducting a study of possible alternatives to US Bike Route 1. They are taking comments on these alternatives. To see the various options and to provide comments, see the US Bike Route 1 Virtual Meeting presentation. The presentation includes maps of the existing route, the route as shown on the VDOT website, and possible alternatives.

The route follows a key corridor through which several bike routes pass: US Bike Route 1, Adventure Cycling Atlantic Coast Route, East Coast Greenway, and Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail. The official route was effectively closed when Woodlawn Road was closed after 9/11, and there are few good alternatives. If you are familiar with this area and want to weigh in on possible routes, visit the Virtual Meeting site and provide comments.

From the presentation:
US Bike Route 1 was established in 1982. Due to new development in Northern Virginia, the current routing of USBR1 needs to be re-evaluated along with any possible alternatives. The project study area extends from the 14th Street Bridge in Arlington County to the southern boundary of Prince William County. This study includes conversations with jurisdictions, an on-road inspection, a Level of Service (LOS) analysis, a detailed signing plan and cost estimates for future implementation.

The following draft maps identify the current route as shown on VDOT's website, as well as several alternatives that are currently under consideration. Please share your thoughts on these routes via the electronic comment forms (found after each map). Your responses will be recorded as you go. Alternatively, you can email comments to: The deadline for comment is Monday, December 16th.
