Community Meeting on Franconia Road Bicycle Improvements June 15!

If you want better bike conditions on Franconia Road near the Van Dorn Metro station, consider attending the community meeting sponsored by Fairfax County on Monday June 15 at 7pm. See our earlier message about this meeting, including a map of the area. From Fairfax County bike pages:
Join us on June 15, 2015, at 7 p.m., to learn about the proposed bicycle improvements to the Franconia Road are. The meeting will be held at Edison High School, 5801 Franconia Rd., Alexandria, and will focus on the proposed addition of bicycle facilities to Franconia Road between South Van Dorn Street and Craft Road. The meeting will include a brief presentation and an opportunity for questions. There will be graphics of the proposed redesign available for those in attendance to view and discuss.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is repaving a section of Franconia Road and is reviewing the segment for the addition of bicycle facilities, as called for in the Fairfax County Bicycle Master Plan. The proposal would implement a "lane diet," which involves narrowing the existing lanes and using the extra space for new bicycle facilities. 

If you have any questions about the meeting or the proposed improvements, please contact Adam Lind, Fairfax County Bicycle Program, at 703-877-5783.
