Fairfax County Transportation Status Report

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) released its bi-annual Fairfax County Transportation Status Report (FCTSR) this month and it’s a great compendium of county  transportation projects, programs and initiatives. Some of the bicycle and pedestrian highlights for the period between March and August 2018 included:  
  • The ongoing projects for the I-495 Tysons Pedestrian Bridge, Mount Vernon Memorial Highway Trail, Transform I-66 Outside the Beltway Regional Trail, and VDOT Summer Paving and Restriping Program. The repaving program added over 30 miles of on-road bike facilities this year, bringing the total to more than 90 miles of on-road bike facilities since the program began. 
  • Three Safe Routes To School-funded sidewalk projects under construction or in design. 
  • The April 2018 Street Smart Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Media Campaigns
  • An April 2018 pedestrian safety enforcement campaign with the Fairfax County Police Department in high pedestrian crash areas countywide. 
  • Bicycle parking added at several bus stops on Little River Turnpike in Annandale and the upgrade of existing bike racks to meet County design guidelines at the Patrick Henry Library and the Sherwood Library. 
  • The completion of the design of “Bike-and-Ride” facilities at Phase II Silver Line Stations and at the Springfield Community Business Center Commuter Parking Garage. 
  • The installation of bicycle wayfinding signage for the Franconia-Springfield Metrorail Station, and along the Fairfax County Parkway Trail. 
  • Finalizing of the locations of Phase II of Reston Bikeshare, which will add 11 more stations to Reston with a majority of those stations located south of the Dulles Toll Road. In addition, preliminary discussions with businesses in Merrifield are underway to place bikeshare stations around the Mosaic District and at the Dunn Loring Metrorail Station with the support of private funds. Mosaic District will launch with seven stations in this fall. 
  • Fairfax County expanded 2018 Bike to Work Day pit stops at which it participates from two to seven, serving residents in McLean, Chantilly, Lorton, Annandale, and Huntington.
