VDOT is holding a virtual public information meeting on Wednesday, September 1, at 7 pm on proposed improvements to Telegraph Road at Hayfield Road in the Hayfield area of Fairfax County.
FABB is encouraging local riders to participate in the meeting to share their ideas about how the project could be improved to address bicyclist and pedestrian safety. At this design stage, VDOT is not considering such improvements. The existing plan merely adds a second northbound through lane on Telegraph Road at the Hayfield Road intersection by converting existing on-road parking. The plan also converts the eastbound Hayfield Road through lane to a shared left-turn through lane.
At the virtual meeting, the project team will make a short presentation beginning at 7:00 pm and answer questions for about an hour. With a plan to reduce congestion and speed traffic flow, this intersection, depending on how local riders use the area, could benefit from improved signage and traffic controls. This meeting is an opportunity for local riders to Speak Up! and make the plan better.
If unable to participate, you can still provide comments by September 9, 2021 via the comment form on the project website, by mail to Ms. Hong Ha, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030 or by email to [email protected]. Please reference “Telegraph Road at Hayfield Road” in the subject line.
