Embark Richmond Highway Community Meeting Set for May 9
FABB is encouraging members and other bicyclists in southern Fairfax County to attend the upcoming community meeting on the plans and work currently underway on the Embark Richmond Highway project. The meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 9, 2016, from 7 to 9 p.m., at Walt Whitman Middle School, 2500 Parkers Lane, Alexandria.
Embark Richmond Highway supports Fairfax County’s long term planning goals of expanding transit service, improving the county’s multimodal transportation system for mixed use areas and building more dense, mixed-use, transit-oriented developments that attract more residents and businesses, and create more job and tax revenues.
A presentation on the project and remarks by Lee District Supervisor Jeff McKay and Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck will be followed by an open house in the cafeteria where the public will be able to talk one-on-one with county staff representatives who are leading various aspects of the project.
