It's Time to Fix the Fairfax County Parkway Trail

Fairfax Co Parkway Trail in Reston
VDOT and Fairfax County are conducting a study of possible short-term multimodal improvements to Fairfax County and Franconia-Springfield Parkways. Now is your chance to tell VDOT to fix the trails parallel to those roads. On Fairfax Co Parkway there are especially dangerous ramp crossings at Spring Street, the Dulles Toll Road, and Route 50. The unsigned detours need to be signed and the detours and trail in general need to be improved.

Please consider attending one of the following meetings or submit comments to: Fairfax County Parkway/Franconia-Springfield Parkway Corridor Study. Please include “Fairfax County Parkway/Franconia-Springfield Parkway Corridor Study” in the subject line.

The sections under study are Fairfax County Parkway from Route 7 to Route 1 and Franconia-Springfield Parkway From – Fairfax County/ Franconia- Springfield Parkways interchange west of I-95 To – Route 613 (Beulah Street). See the meeting presentation.
