Screen Shot 2020 02 29 at 9.17.01 AM 300x291 - Speak Up for Bike Lanes at Braddock District Paving and Restriping MeetingBraddock District bicyclists have a great opportunity to show their support for more and better bike infrastructure at an upcoming Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) public meeting on the 2020 paving and restriping program on Tuesday, March 31. The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm in Braddock Hall in the Braddock District Government Center, 9002 Burke Lake Road, in Burke. Local riders and other interested residents will have the opportunity to learn about VDOT’s repaving program, proposed striping changes to add bike facilities, and general traffic safety concerns.

The plans for Braddock include only one bike infrastructure addition, but it is a significant one. VDOT and FCDOT are proposing to narrow the wide travel lanes on Freds Oak Road between Oak Leather Drive and Fairfax County Parkway by adding bike lanes. This traffic calming change and bike infrastructure addition will not affect existing legal on-street parking on both sides of the road, so the plan is a win-win for road users and residents.

Please plan now to attend and provide input on the roads scheduled for paving and restriping changes. For residents who cannot attend the meetings in person, the meeting presentation will be available on the Braddock District paving and restriping webpage, and feedback may be submitted online here with the comment period closing on March 31.
