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.
Speakers included: Federal Transit Administrator Peter Rogoff, Congressman Gerry Connolly, and a panel discussion moderated by Adam Tuss from NBC4 and panelists David Alpert from Greater Greater Washington, Josh Sawislak from the Mobile Work Exchange, and Frank Weith of Volkswagen of America. A video production titled The History of Transportation in Fairfax County, produced by Channel 16, will also be screened.
Evolution of Transportation rebroadcast dates on Channel 16: 8 p.m. on June 25, June 30, and July 3.
