Getting the Facts Before 12 April Braddock District Bicycle Projects Meeting

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) has updated information about planned bicycle improvements to Heritage Drive. This project, as mentioned in an earlier post, is one of several scheduled for Braddock District this summer. According to FCDOT, the current proposal does not change the number of vehicular lanes and parking spaces except for a short 0.2-mile segment between Rectory Lane and Patriot Drive. The proposed design to the north and south of the segment retains the existing number of travel and parking lanes but reduces their widths to create space to include a bike lane. FCDOT has posted a map with additional clarifying information about the plans for Heritage Drive.

FABB wants to remind members and interested Fairfax residents that FCDOT is holding a community meeting this coming Tuesday on the proposed Braddock District bicycle improvement projects. The meeting is being held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Canterbury Woods Elementary School, 4910 Willet Drive, in Annandale.

We are encouraging supporters to show up and demonstrate to FCDOT that these improvements are important and should be completed. A good turn out is more important than ever, and FABB hopes concerned cyclists will make the time to attend.

In addition to Heritage Drive, improvements will be made to Ravensworth Road, Coffer Woods Road, Patriot Drive, Guinea Road, and Queensberry Avenue. All of the changes are being made as part of the Virginia Department of Transportation's 2016 summer road repaving program. In addition to showing support for the project, the meeting is an opportunity for cyclists to help FCDOT by sharing their experience and ideas on how get the most benefit from the repaving projects.
