The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will host a public information meeting on a planned project to construct missing segments of the shared-use path along northbound Route 29 on Tuesday, March 5, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Fairhill Elementary School, 3001 Chichester Lane, in Fairfax. FABB encourages local riders to attend and show their support for these improvements.
The $1.3 million project, scheduled for the summer of 2021, will occur between Vaden Drive and Nutley Street (Route 243) to improve safety and accessibility for bicyclists and pedestrians. The project also will extend the Route 29 culvert over the tributary of Accotink Creek just west of Nutley Street to accommodate the shared-use path. This project is being funded with the I-66 concession fee.
If unable to attend, you can review project information at the VDOT project website here. Written comments need to be submitted by March 15, 2019, either by email to [email protected] (please reference “Route 29 Northbound Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements” in the subject line) or regular mail to Ms. Hong Ha, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030.
