Meeting to Discuss Bike Lanes on Sherwood Hall Lane

On Wednesday, March 12 Fairfax DOT and VDOT are holding a meeting to discuss proposed bike lanes on Sherwood Hall Lane. This road is an important connection between Mt Vernon Parkway/Fort Hunt Rd and the Route 1 Corridor. Some nearby residents have voiced strong opposition to the plan. Cyclists are encouraged to attend the meeting and support the proposal. The meeting is from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Mount Vernon Governmental Center, 2511 Parkers Lane, Alexandria, VA 22306.

From the meeting announcement: This coming year Sherwood Hall Lane is scheduled to be repaved from US Route 1 (Richmond Highway) to Fort Hunt Road (State Route 629). VDOT and Fairfax Co DOT are examining changes in the pavement markings and signage to address the community’s concerns and make Sherwood Hall Lane more pedestrian and bicycle friendly. As part of the County’s on road bike lane initiative, funding has been made available to prepare pavement marking plans in order to retrofit bike lanes and left turn lanes as part of this repaving project. An initial concept of the markings is to be presented at this public information meeting. The public is invited to comment on the concept.
