Meeting to discuss Franconia Road bike facilities on June 15

Franconia Road near the Van Dorn Metro station is an important bicycle connection for cyclists in the Franconia-Huntington area. VDOT is planning to repave the road between Van Dorn St and Craft Road. There are currently no dedicated bike facilities along this section of the road. Now is your chance to speak out in support of adding bike lanes as part of this repaving project.

From Fairfax County:
June 15, 2015. 7:00-8:30 PM. Edison High School, 5801 Franconia Road, Alexandria, VA 22310. This meeting is being held to discuss the proposed addition of bicycle facilities to Franconia Road between South Van Dorn Street and Craft Road. The Virginia Department of Transporation is repaving a section of Franconia Road and in partnership with the County is reviewing the segment for the addition of bicycle facilites, as called for on the Bicycle Master Plan. The proposal would implement a "lane diet," which involves narrowing the existing lanes and using the extra space for bicycle facilities. The meeting will include a brief presentation and a Q&A session. There will be graphics of the poroposed redesign available for those in attendence to view and discuss If you have any questions, please contact Adam Lind at 703-877-5783.
