Countywide Bicycle Master Plan
Introduction and Overview
Fairfax County is developing a countywide bicycle master plan. The plan will determine what steps should be taken to improve the existing transportation system and make Fairfax County bicycle friendly. It will recommend a network of both on-road and off-road facilities that will serve as a bicycle transportation network. It will recommend how bicycle friendly design can be incorporated into future roadway projects, transit projects, and it will provide policy guidance to both the public and private sectors on establishing and promoting bicycling as a mode of transportation.
Phase I: The study area for this phase includes the greater
Tysons Corner area, an approximate three mile radius surrounding Tysons
Corner including portions of McLean, the Town of Vienna, Wolf Trap, the
City of Falls Church, the neighborhoods of Dunn Loring, Pimmit Hills, and
the W&OD Trail. This phase was completed in May of 2011.
Phase II: This phase includes the rest of Fairfax County. This phase will build on the information gleaned from Phase I, and will broadly address bicycle safety and connectivity throughout the County. Building from the policy analysis conducted in Phase I, Phase II will recommend countywide policies and programs needed to support bicycling for all age groups and skill levels.
