Make Your Time Count

Can you spare a few hours to help make bicycling better in our local communities? The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is trying to qualify for funding for better bike infrastructure. To do this, they need bike counts and volunteers to help do the counting. 

To participate volunteers need to log in and sign up for the specific location, date and time through the Fairfax County Volunteer portal here

The name of the project is “Counts for state funding – Bicycle and Pedestrian.” Opportunities are currently available to participate on October 10, 11, 23, 24 and 25 in the morning and afternoon (times are location dependent and are listed in the volunteer calendar). 

Counts are set to occur at the following locations: 

  • Little River Turnpike at I-495 ramps
  • Little River Turnpike at Conwell Drive
  • Columbia Pike at Lincolnia Drive
  • South Lakes Drive at Tanbark Drive (East)
  • Franklin Farms Road at Thorngate  Drive
  • Franklin Farms Road at Old Dairy Road
  • Bluemont Way at Democracy Drive
  • Fry Rd, 300 feet North of Richmond Highway 
If you live near these locations, won’t you please help FCDOT and your community by volunteering to do a bike count? 

And, if you can’t do a bike count, get some friends and family together and go for a ride past one or more of the eight locations.
