Dec. 2 Deadline for Comments on Hunter Mill Bike LanesOn November 14 Adam Lind, the county bike coordinator, gave a presentation on a proposal to modify the lane striping on roads in Reston that will be repaved in 2017. The county is accepting comments on the proposal until December 2. We support the county's efforts to make Reston a better place to bike, especially the proposal for a road diet on Colts Neck Road where at least two people have been killed trying to cross the road. One option is to reduce the travel lanes from 4 to 2 with bike lanes, making the road safer for everyone.
From the project page 2017 Proposed Hunter Mill Bike Lanes: "The proposed improvements are limited to changes that can be made with roadway striping as part of the repaving process." The following roads are impacted:
- Glade Drive: Glade Bank Way to Twin Branches Road
- Twin Branches Road: Lawyers Road to South Lakes Drive
- Colts Neck Road: Reston Parkway to Sunrise Valley Drive
- North Shore Drive: Ring Road to Oak Spring Way
The presentation from the Nov. 14 meeting is online.
