Cyclists speak out for bike facilities on HOT lanes bridges

At the HOT lanes meeting last night several cyclists spoke in support of including bike facilities on the Old Dominion and Georgetown Pike bridges across the Beltway as part of the extension of the HOT lanes project. The bridges will be rebuilt if the extension is approved.

The cyclists may not support the HOT lanes extension, but if the project goes forward, this is the only chance for the next 50-60 years for including bike facilities on those bridges. It's consistent with the VDOT Policy for Integrating Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodations, with the new FHWA Policy Statement on Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodations, and it's the right thing to do.

It was important to show your support. Others in attendance belittled the idea of people actually wanting to bike in that area. Thanks to everyone who came to the meeting.
