- Online Braddock District paving and restriping meeting set for March 11.
- Bike lanes planned for Commonwealth Boulevard and Government Center Parkway.
FABB encourages local riders to plan now to participate in the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) virtual public meeting on proposed paving and restriping changes in the Braddock District on Thursday, March 11, at 7 pm.
This is a great opportunity to Speak Up! and help improve VDOT’s summer repaving program. Your suggestions and ideas are important because the county uses the VDOT program to implement the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan, which includes the bike infrastructure found in the Bicycle Master Plan.
The proposals for Braddock District this year include new biking facilities for:
- Commonwealth Boulevard from Guinea Road to Sideburn Road: Adds an eastbound bike lane.
- Government Center Parkway from Monument Drive to Waples Mill Road: Converts underutilized outside travel lanes into buffered bike lanes to mitigate speeding and improve multi-modal mobility and safety.
