Public Meeting Scheduled for Bicycle Master Plan
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, February 17, 2011 to present the final draft of the Tysons Corner Bicycle Master Plan, which is Phase I of the County Bicycle Master Plan document and maps. The plan reflects recommendations solicited from residents at a previous public meeting. The next step in the process is formal adoption from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.

 

Thursday, Feb. 17
7 - 9  p.m.
Joyce Kilmer Middle School

8100 Wolftrap Road, Vienna

 

The final 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.

 

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.
