Braddock and Providence Districts Repaving and Restriping Meeting Set for March 1

In their ongoing series of public meetings, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will host a repaving and restriping meeting for the Braddock and Providence Districts on Thursday, March 1, 2018.  The meeting will be held at the Oak View Elementary School Cafeteria, 5004 Sideburn Road in Fairfax. 
As you know VDOT and FCDOT use the repaving and restriping process to implement Fairfax County’s Comprehensive Plan to improve traffic safety and provide more transportation options. Proposed striping changes in the Braddock District 
include road redesigns of Forum Road, Post Forest Drive and Ridgetop Road, as well as adding striped parking lanes, shared lane markings (sharrows), bike lanes and buffered bike lanes on Sideburn Road. Sadly, there are no striping changes planned in the Providence District in 2018. Details on the proposed changes can be found here.
This is a great opportunity for bike advocates to show up and speak up in support of the proposals and provide ideas to the VDOT and FCDOT planners for future restriping opportunities. If you can’t attend, you can still provide comments through March 16, 2018. Submit you comments for Braddock District here and for Providence District here.

Note: FCDOT is proposing buffered bike lanes on Post Forest Drive, which is part of the I-66 Parallel Trail (by others). Let's be sure to support these improvements!
