Supervisor Foust funds bike improvements

According to the article Foust Announces Improvements in the Great Falls Connection newspaper:
Dranesville Supervisor John Foust announced that the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has approved the funding of over twenty intersection, pedestrian, and bicycle projects in the Dranesville District. These improvements are in addition to several recently completed projects and seven projects previously funded and scheduled for completion this summer or fall.

In selecting these projects, Supervisor Foust listened to the concerns of numerous constituents, Dranesville homeowner associations and civic organizations, the McLean Pedestrian and Bicycle Task Force, as well as the Dranesville representative to the Fairfax County Trails and Sidewalks Committee.
Several projects include on-road bike facilities such as bike lanes or paved shoulders:
  • Old Dominion Drive / Spring Hill Road and Old Dominion Drive / Towlston Road: Extend shoulder and relocate or cover dangerous ditch
  • Fleetwood Road: Add bike route signage from Elm Street to Chain Bridge Road
  • Kurtz Road and Calder Road: Add bike lane between Dolley Madison Blvd. and Calder Road, and then on Calder Road between Kurtz Road and Brawner Street.
  • River Bend Road and Beech Mill Road: Add "Share the Road" signs on River Bend Road from Old Dominion Drive to Beech Mill Road and on Beech Mill Road from River Bend Road to the County Line via Brockman Lane – a distance of 7.8 miles.
  • Old Dominion Drive East of Old Gate Court (construction just completed): Extend east bound shoulder and eliminate dangerous ditch.
See the Recommendations to Improve Bicycle Access and Safety developed by the Dranesville bike advisory committee.
