Fairfax County Department of Transportation Pedestrian Infrastructure Requests
FCDOT is proud to introduce its first interactive web map where you, the resident, can show us where you think pedestrian safety can be improved. This tool is an extension of our existing process that allows residents to e-mail FCDOT and request sidewalk and trail connections, curb ramps, improved signage, and other strategies to improve pedestrian safety.
This web map continues FCDOT's initiative to be more open and interactive with you, the public, that has been established through our Countywide Dialogue on Transportation surveys and web maps, including the Capital Projects web map, that allows the public to keep track of the location and progress of transportation improvement projects in Fairfax County.
If you would like to submit a request for pedestrian improvements without using this map, you can submit your request online.
As always, we value your input, for comments and questions please contact us at PedestrianPrograms@fairfaxcounty.gov.
Tips for Using the Map
FCDOT created the following how-to guide so that users can easily submit their requests. If you are having any difficulties, please e-mail us at PedestrianPrograms@fairfaxcounty.gov.
The map has additional tools to help users navigate the map, refer below for listed features:
- Print: Once zoomed to a particular area the user can print out a map displaying what is in the window including POI and route information.
- Layers: Upon initial activation, the map will display the Capital Projects Layer, and a Transit Layer. Additionally, you have the option to turn on a walkways layer that will display all sidewalks and trails within the County. Any of these layers can be toggled on or off.
- Basemap: Users can change the background mapping to include open streets, imagery or a grey canvas among others.
- Share: Ability to share route location via, email, facebook or twitter
