September 14 Meeting on FFX Co Pkwy Trail/Dulles Toll Road Ramp Crossing Options

Two of the more dangerous intersections on the Fairfax Co Parkway Trail is where the trail crosses the Dulles Toll Road entrance and exit ramps in Reston. Fairfax County is holding a community meeting to discuss two options for improving one of those crossings, at the Toll Road eastbound entrance ramp. The meeting is on September 14 from 6:30-8 p.m. at Dogwood Elementary School.

One option is an improved, signalized at-grade crossing. The other option is a ped/bike bridge over the ramp. While the bridge option would involve a circuitous loop, it would be safer than the at-grade crossing. Why not attend this meeting, view exhibits, and voice your opinion?

From Fairfax County:

September 1, 2017

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will host a community meeting on the Fairfax County Parkway trail at Dulles Toll Road ramp intersection improvements on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017, in the cafeteria of Dogwood Elementary School, 12300 Glade Drive, Reston, from 6:30-8 p.m.

Two options that are under consideration for the intersection include at-grade intersection improvements and a pedestrian-bicycle bridge. For more information, including the study summary and details on the two options, visit the project website.

The proposed intersection work is part of the Reston Metrorail Access Group (RMAG) II improvements that were endorsed and funded by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on Dec. 8, 2015.
