“Transportation Matters” Is the Second in the Providence District Seminar Series
“Transportation Matters” seminar will be presented on Tuesday, May 22, from 7 to 9 p.m. at George C. Marshall High School, 7731 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church. This is the second in the 2007 Providence District seminar series hosted by Providence District Supervisor Linda Smyth.
The main presentation will cover the recently enacted Virginia General Assembly Transportation Plan and move to a discussion of High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes along the Capital Beltway. Staff from Transurban, the firm designing and constructing the project, will outline the HOT lanes project and answer questions. HOT lane topics include the current design, the toll mechanism and pricing and the construction phase. The project will significantly impact travel around Northern Virginia. This is an opportunity for residents to ask questions.
The Fairfax County Department of Transportation will have tables where information will be provided on county programs developed to improve transportation. The information available will include the Residential Traffic Administration Program, which includes traffic calming; bicycling; bus service; and pedestrian walkways. Staff will be available to answer questions.
The last seminar in this series will focus on the planning and development of Tysons. This is the third year for the seminars. More information on these seminars is available on the Providence District Seminar Series Web page at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/providence/projects.htm or by calling the Providence District Office at 703-560-6946, TTY 711. Reasonable ADA accommodations will be provided upon request.
