Fred Oaks Road

If you haven’t provided comments yet on VDOT’s plans to add new bike facilities to Braddock, Dranesville, and Providence Districts, please do so by the deadline on April 14.

Braddock District plans include a proposal to narrow the wide travel lanes on Freds Oak Road between Oak Leather Drive and Fairfax County Parkway by adding bike lanes. This traffic calming change and bike infrastructure addition will not affect existing legal on-street parking on both sides of the road.

Providence District plans include:

  • Bike lanes for Dorr Avenue from Prosperity Avenue to Lee Highway.
  • Bike lanes where space allows on Hartland Road from Lee Highway to Cul-de-sac.
  • A buffered bike lane in each direction on Hilltop Road from Cedar Lane to Lee Highway.
  • A westbound bike lane and eastbound sharrow for Jones Branch Drive from east of Westbranch Drive to Lincoln Way.
  • Bike lanes and sharrows for Old Lee Highway between Hilltop Road and Lee Highway.
  • A bike lane in each direction for Porter Road between Lee Highway and Gallows Road.
  • Buffered bike lanes in each direction for Prosperity Avenue between Hilltop Road and Halstead II Lane and for Providence Forest Drive between Gallows Road and Hartland Road.
