Support bike facilities in I-66 corridor project - Update re: Jan 26 mtg cancelled

Your help is needed to ensure that safe and accessible bicycle and pedestrian facilities are included as part of a significant construction project planned for the I-66 corridor outside the Beltway. These facilities should include a grade-separated trail parallel to I-66 that would be an extension of the Custis Trail and bike facilities on bridges across I-66 when they are rebuilt.

Please consider attending one of the upcoming public meetings January 26, 27, and 29 to learn more about the project and voice your support for bike access, or Take Action Now to insist that biking and walking be an integral part of the planned multi-modal improvements to the I-66 corridor.  
Providing bicycle and pedestrian facilities along I-66 will: 
  • Improve bicycle and pedestrian access to transit and surrounding neighborhoods
  • Promote biking for both long distance and short local trips
  • Reduce traffic congestion along I-66 and neighboring roads 
  • Provide a great recreational asset and opportunities for physical fitness 
If you cannot attend one of the upcoming public meetings listed below, please take a moment to submit your comments to VDOT using the form hosted by WABA. Please also write to your Fairfax County Supervisor and your Virginia Delegate and Senator. This project will have huge impacts on the region so let's make sure we do it right!
