Public Meeting Scheduled for Bicycle Master Plan

From Fairfax County Department of Transportation:

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will hold a public meeting on Thursday, September 30, to discuss recommendations on how bicycle-friendly design should be incorporated into future roadway and transit projects and private developments. The plan creation will be divided into two phases with Phase I focusing on the Tysons Corner area. Members of the public are encouraged to attend the Phase I meeting tomorrow from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Joyce Kilmer Middle School located at 8100 Wolftrap Road in Vienna, VA.

The recently-adopted amendment to the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan for Tysons Corner envisions a mixed-use urban center with a more traditional downtown feel; a place which is friendly to bicyclists and pedestrians; a place organized around the four new Silver Line Metrorail stations. This vision includes a network of connected on-road and off-road bicycle facilities so residents, employees and visitors can travel comfortably and safely by bicycle to destinations within and around Tysons Corner.

The plan will include detailed recommendations for physical infrastructure (bike paths, bike lanes, bike parking, etc) to support bicycling in Tysons Corner and policies and programs that are needed in order to encourage residents and visitors to travel by bicycle. Following Phase I (the Tyson’s Corner Bicycle Master Plan), Phase II of the project will establish a countywide bicycle master plan.
