I-66 Meetings on Tuesday and Thursday

Two meetings on major proposed changes to the I-66 outside the Beltway that were postponed due to snow last week will be held at the following locations this week:

  • Tuesday, February 3, at Oakton High School in Vienna from 6:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, February 5, at the VDOT Northern Virginia District Office in Fairfax from 6:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.
Bicycle facilities need to be part of proposed changes to the I-66 corridor, to provide a non-motorized alternative for taking short trips and to provide commuters a way to connect to Fairfax City, the Custis Trail, the growing Merrifield area, and points west. The trail could also be an important recreational asset for this populated central part of Fairfax that lacks a good east-west bicycle facility.

We're urging cyclists to attend these meetings and ask about the status of bike facilities on all of the bridges across I-66 and a parallel trail along I-66 similar to the Custis Trail inside the Beltway.

For more information on the need for bike facilities in this corridor see our web page on I-66 Bicycle Facilities: 495 to Haymarket.
