Evolution of Transportation



Chairman Sharon Bulova, in partnership with the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce and the Fairfax County Federation of Citizens Associations, hosted the The Evolution of Transportation on June 12, 2013 at the Angelika Film Center and Café in Merrifield.

From buffalo trails to roads and rails, the event was a fun and interesting look at how Fairfax County’s transportation network evolved over time and what the future holds for transportation in the region.
