Upcoming Meetings on Fairfax County and Franconia-Springfield Parkways
FCDOT and VDOT are holding three community meetings this month to discuss the Fairfax County Parkway and Franconia-Springfield Parkway. The DOT’s have been evaluating existing transportation issues and are developing recommendations for short-term multimodal improvements that can be implemented within the next one to ten years.
The meetings will be held next Monday, November 14, in Herndon, next Wednesday, November 16, in Burke, and on Monday, November 21, in Alexandria. The meetings all begin at 7 p.m. Please visit this link for information and specific meeting locations.
It would be great if some FABB members could attend each of the meetings (and, yes, we know that our Dranesville District meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday). But, we need to spread out and advocate. In particular, we need someone to attend to reemphasize that on Fairfax Co Parkway there are especially dangerous ramp crossings at Spring Street, the Dulles Toll Road, and Route 50. In addition, the unsigned detours need to be signed and the detours and trail in general need to be improved.
Members also can provide comments until close of business on Wednesday, December 7, 2016, by e-mail: email@example.com or mail: Mr. Abraham Lerner, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030. Please reference "Fairfax County Parkway & Franconia-Springfield Parkway Corridor Study" in the subject line.
