FABB encourages local riders to push for proposed buffered bike lanes for Sully District at Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) virtual public meeting on proposed paving and restriping changes on Tuesday, April 18, at 7 pm.
FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to add either buffered or standard bike lanes on Metrotech Drive between Centreville Road and Route 50 where space allows by narrowing travel lanes or converting underutilized travel lanes where feasible. We need a strong showing to push for buffered lanes, which will improve the safety and appeal of these bike lanes to a wider range of riders.
FCDOT and VDOT also are considering upgrades to multiple crosswalk locations, which may include marked crosswalks, high-visibility crosswalks and/or crosswalk signage, and FABB urges riders to support these pedestrian safety improvements.
