Vote YES tomorrow on 2014 Transportation Bond

Please vote YES tomorrow for the 2014 Transportation Bond. The bond is supported by the League of Women Voters, the Partnership for a Healthier Fairfax, and many other organizations. A significant portion of the bond will go towards building pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure. Most of those projects are missing sidewalk links that should have been built years ago.

The majority of the county's $1.4 billion in transportation projects are major road and transit projects. The $85 million in ped/bike projects in the bond is a only 6% percent of that total. The major road and transit projects will be funded primarily using new state funds (from HB 2313). Since the county has decided ped/bike projects do not qualify for those funds, the Transportation Bond will be used to fund them.
