Annual Taste of Braddock Was a Great Success With Over 300 Community
On December 5 Supervisor Cook held the 18th Annual Taste of Braddock event in Braddock Hall, welcoming over 300 members of the community. The Taste of Braddock is an event that Supervisor Cook hosts every year celebrating the holiday season bringing together the community to taste food donated by local area restaurants.
In January, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will launch the first of what will eventually be three new Fairfax Connector bus lines that seek to take advantage of the 495 Express Lanes. The initial line will provide commuters in the Burke community with quick, reliable access from the Burke Centre VRE to Tysons Corner.
