While Fairfax zeros out bike program operating funds, Arlington raises $1million

From TheWashCycle summary of the June Arlington Bicycle Advisory Committee meeting (emphasis added):
David Goodman presented a draft FY 2011 Pedestrian and Bicycle Programs Funding plan. The decal fee for vehicles will be increased by $8 to $36, and this money is dedicated for bicycle and pedestrian safety and infrastructure improvements. This earmarking of funds is unprecedented and equates to approximately $1 million - $600,000 for arterial improvements, $100,000 for technology enhancements (ped/bike counter, auto bike detectors), $100,000 wayfinding, and $200,000 for infrastructure/installation of bike sharing system.
That's what's available  for next year. This is work that is already underway (Are we envious? Yes):
Dave Kirschner reported on paving projects including:
  • Sycamore – from Fairfax County line to Williamsburg Circle – is being resurfaced, paved and painted. This includes sharrows and bike lanes. Sharrows will be in the center of the lane.
  • George Mason – from Columbia Pike to Glebe – lane signage, sharrows in center lane which will connect to bike lane, Northbound
  • Arlington Mill Drive - ???– bike lane and parking lane
  • Quincy Street – from Glebe to Lee Highway - bike lane improvements, bike lanes, sharrows
  • Fairfax Drive – from north of Washington Boulevard through Ballston - sharrows
  • Army-Navy Drive – Entrance to Joyce Street, parking/bike lane, this is a long terms project
