• It will soon be repaving and restriping time in Fairfax County.
  • Plan now to join virtual public meetings scheduled this month to support new bicycling infrastructure.

Each year the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) VDOT and the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) use the summer repaving and restriping program as a cost-effective opportunity to add bicyclist and pedestrian facilities to improve safety.

VDOT and FCDOT also host public meetings each year to gather input from local citizens about planned roadway changes and any proposed bike/ped infrastructure.

FABB encourages local riders to participate in this year’s online meetings and show their support for the proposed bicycling improvements. Time and again, rider advocacy and ideas at these meetings have proved critical for ensuring that proposed bicycle facilities do not get abandoned in the face of demands to retain the status quo to protect on street parking or simply discourage biking.

Although the proposals have not been publicized, the schedule for meetings is now available and FABB is asking local riders to mark their calendars and make plans to participate.

This is a critical annual opportunity to make bicycling better in Fairfax County. Please help and Speak Up for added bike lanes and other safety improvements.
