Current plans for bike facilities on I-66 bridges to be rebuilt

At the March FABB meeting representatives from VDOT discussed the current planning for bike facilities on the bridges across I-66 that will be rebuilt as part of the I-66 outside the Beltway project. Not all bridges will be modified, including the Stringfellow Rd bridge.

For more info, consider attending the forum tonight, I-66 and Our Neighborhoods beginning at 7pm at Oakton High School. The meeting is open to all but RSVP is appreciated.

Sadly I can't make the meeting. It is depressing to see no bike lane planned for Cedar. That is a key road to getting from Cottage st to any point south.
More of these bridges, including Cedar Lane and Blake Lane, should receive bike lanes. The criteria for including bike lanes should not just be which roads are *currently* designated for bike lanes in the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan but also which roads *might* be designated for bike lanes in the Comp Plan over the next 50+ years.

For arterial roads with I-66 interchanges, VDOT should install sharrows in the rightmost through lane, to facilitate through on-road bicycling across the interchange.
