Meeting tonight on the I-66 corridor outside the Beltway

Tonight, Thursday, Jan. 30, VDOT is holding a public meeting on transportation improvements along the I-66 corridor outside the Beltway. The meeting begins at 6:30pm at Oakton High School, 2900 Sutton Road, Vienna.

Please consider letting VDOT and DRPT know about the needs of bicyclists along the I-66 corridor. Many of us currently use the Custis Trail parallel to I-66 in Arlington County. A similar trail should be built along I-66 outside the Beltway. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors supports this trail that is included in the Countywide Trails Plan. Cyclists also need to be able to safely cross I-66.

See our comments from an earlier meeting. See also the display boards from tonight's meeting. The only implied reference to bicycle access in the displays is: "Intermodal Connectivity: Availability of a full range of travel modes within the corridor, as well as availability and functionality of connections between travel modes." See the meeting comment sheet. The above info is contained on the I-66 Corridor Improvements site:
