Volunteers Needed for 2017 National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation is looking to recruit volunteers to help count non-motorized road and trail users in September as part of an annual national data gathering project. No previous counting experience is necessary, and voluntary in-person training and digital training materials will be provided. This opportunity is suitable for those under age 18. The minimum age to volunteer is 14 and those under 16 need a parent with them.

Volunteers for the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project will play a critical role in: 1) building a robust and public database of pedestrian and bicycle use; and 2) identifying local and national trends in biking and walking. These counts are essential for advancing active transportation because they inform planning and engineering professionals on the diversity of our transportation and recreation habits. 

Counts in September will be conducted at the following locations: 
  • Heritage Dr and Ravensworth Rd in Annandale 
  • Magarity Rd and Peabody Dr in Pimmit Hills 
  • Park Run Dr and Westpark Dr in Tysons
  • Richmond Highway and Huntington Ave in Huntington 
  • Frontier Dr, Commerce St and Amherst Rd in Springfield 
  • Beulah St and Telegraph Rd in Kingstowne
  • Town Center Pkwy, New Dominion Parkway, W&OD trail and Fairfax Co Pkwy in Reston 
  • George Mason Blvd and University Dr in Fairfax 
  • Rt. 50 and Metrotech Dr in Chantilly 
  • W&OD trail and Gallows Rd in Dunn Loring

If you are interested in being part of future bicycle and pedestrian counts, please apply to Nicole Wynands at 703-877-5625 or
