I-66 Forum and Mason District bike meeting Wednesday

Two important bike-related meetings are planned for Wednesday, March 25:

FABB is co-hosting I-66 and Our Neighborhoods, a forum on the I-66 outside the Beltway project. Learn more about the project and hear comments from Supervisor Smyth, Stwart Schwartz of the Coalition for Smarter Growth, and reps from VDOT, Fairfax DOT, and the Fairfax Transportation Advisory Commission. The meeting is from 7pm – 9pm at Oakton High School, 2900 Sutton Road, Vienna, VA 22181.

This is a great opportunity to voice concerns about the project's effects on our community and ask that bicycling and walking be an integral part of VDOT's multi-modal solutions to the I-66 corridor.

There will be a brief panel discussion followed by an extended open forum Q&A.
Introductory remarks by Providence District Supervisor Linda Smyth
Moderated by Stewart Schwartz, Coalition for Smarter Growth
Speakers from Virginia Department of Transportation, Fairfax County
Department of Transportation, and Transportation Advisory Commission
Closing comments by Tania Hossain, Providence District Council
Also on Wednesday Fairfax County is hosting a meeting on two bike projects in the Mason District. Sections of Annandale Road and Evergreen Lane will be repaved this summer and bike lanes will be added. According to Fairfax County:
Each of these two projects proposes to reduce the existing travel lane width, and repurpose the extra space for bike lanes. No travel lanes will be removed. The meeting is being held March 25 at George Mason Regional Library 7001 Little River Turnpike, Annandale, VA 22003. The meeting scheduled fro 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
Cyclists are encouraged to attend this meeting to learn more about these important projects and to support the County and VDOT in trying to make Fairfax County more bike-friendly.
