I-66 Bicycle and Pedestrian Trail Update

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) reported recently on recent design changes to the new parallel trail along I-66. Crediting feedback from bicycling advocates and surrounding communities, VDOT said that the project will now incorporate a taller, 50-inch-high concrete barrier to separate the shared use path when it is on the highway side of the noise wall. This is similar to the barrier that separates the trail from the roadway on the Capital Beltway's Woodrow Wilson Bridge.

As you know, the Transform 66 Project includes 11 miles of new shared use trail along I-66 that will tie into existing trail systems. This includes new or expanded bicycle and pedestrian facilities on 11 bridges. Additional trail sections will be built as part of the project in coordination with VDOT and local governments.

Thanks to everyone who has attended meetings and submitted comments to VDOT. Speaking Up works and FABB plans to keep doing so.
