FABB encourages local riders in the Fair Oaks/Fair Lakes area to participate in a VDOT virtual design public hearing on Tuesday, December 14 at 7 pm to discuss to the planned Post Forest Drive and Random Hills Road shared-use paths. This project aims to improve bicyclist and pedestrian safety, accessibility, and connectivity to the I-66 bicycle/pedestrian network.
The planned project will upgrade the sidewalk along the south side of Post Forest Drive to a ten-foot-wide shared-use path from just west of Black Ironwood Drive to Random Hills Road. To accommodate the ten-foot-wide shared-use path, Post Forest Drive will be restriped without bicycle lanes among other modifications. Post Forest Drive east of Random Hills Road will then be restriped to align with the new road configuration.
The project also will upgrade the existing sidewalk along the east side of Random Hills Road to a ten-foot-wide shared-use path from Post Forest Drive to the existing shared-use path just beyond the Monument Drive overpass.
We need riders familiar with the area to help VDOT planners understand the impact of the planned changes, offer ideas to improve the plans, and show support for VDOT’s continued interest in improving biking and walking infrastructure.
Visit the VDOT project website here to register to participate (use Webinar ID: 669-439-307) or to provide feedback on the project by January 3, 2022.
