Fairfax voters overwhelmingly support ped/bike project funding

According to the unofficial results from Fairfax County, the 2014 Transportation Bond was approved 214,344 to 83,999. The $100 million bond includes $77.5 million in pedestrian projects, $6.5 million in bike projects, and $16 million in spot road projects. The vote shows that Fairfax residents want safe walk and bike routes and they are willing to pay for them.

The bike projects include:
  • Wakefield Chapel Rd Walkway/Bike Lanes
  • Lake Braddock Drive Road Diet
  • Burke VRE Connector Ph. IV
  • Cross County Trail Upgrades
  • Burke Road Bike Lanes
  • West Ox Road Trail
  • Route 50 Trail
  • Elm St/Dolley Madison Blvd Improved Pedestrian and Bicycle Crossing
  • Franconia-Springfield Metrorail Station/VRE Enhanced Bicycle Parking
  • Government Center Area Bicycle Demonstration Project
  • Northern Virginia Community College Medical Education Campus, Springfield
  • Vienna Metrorail Station Area Bicycle Connectivity Improvements
  • Westmoreland Street On-Road Bike Lanes
  • Westmoreland Street/Rosemont Drive
Even though Springfield District Supervisor Herrity opposed the bond in a broadcast message sent out yesterday, Springfield District voters thought otherwise, voting 23,834 to 11,220 in support of the bond.

Thank you Fairfax voters!
