Braddock Road widening project meeting on Wed.

Fairfax County plans to widen Braddock Road from Guinea Road to the Beltway. The Braddock Road corridor has major potential as a bike route between Annandale and other destinations east of the Beltway, and Burke, George Mason University, and Fairfax City west of the Beltway. Bike accommodations need to be part of the project.

A meeting will be held on Wed., Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at Lake Braddock Secondary School. The purpose of the meeting is to "allow the County to outline the project, collect public feedback, and introduce a citizen’s committee that will have a key role in planning." Cyclists are encouraged to attend the meeting and speak out for safe, connected bike facilities on Braddock Road.


When I was looking to buy a house in Fairfax County back in the late 1980s I found a great place off Braddock Road. Really liked the house. Then I realized where would I run or bike. The neighborhood was designed to be downright hostile toward cyclists and pedestrians. I wonder how many others took one look at the monstrosity of Braddock Road and quietly bought elsewhere.
