Updated with new meeting location on November 7.

FABB is asking Reston-area riders to register for an upcoming workshop on Monday, November 13, to offer their ideas for making bicycling better on Wiehle Avenue from Sunrise Valley Drive to the Washington and Old Dominion Trail.

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is conducting a multimodal corridor study of this area and is holding a community workshop to brainstorm ideas for improvements.

The workshop will run from of 5:45 pm to 9:00 pm at the Langston Hughes Middle School, 11401 Ridge Heights Road, in Reston. A light dinner will be provided at check-in, followed by a presentation on the study’s background and purpose, a mapping exercise, small group brainstorming sessions, reporting of ideas, and consensus building.

The study seeks to evaluate Wiehle Avenue’s multimodal operations since the opening of Phase II of Metrorail’s Silver Line and determine how to best transform this corridor from an auto-dominated suburban designed road to a multimodal urban designed street.

This effort is expected to identify new and improved bicycle/pedestrian facilities and intersection treatments, as well as evaluate the potential reconfiguration of vehicular lanes and/or widths for current and future land use scenarios. We need local riders who know the area to Speak Up! and let FCDOT know about their experiences and share their ideas for adding protected bike lanes and other biking improvements.

Please register to attend at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/transportation/study/wiehle-avenue.

This is a great opportunity to make bicycling better, so register today!
