Communities included in the Providence District generally include Merrifield, Oakton, Tysons Corner and Vienna.

 

 

Capital Bikeshare is now in Tysons!

17 stations have been unwrapped in Reston (9 stations) and Tysons (8 stations), offering another way to travel in those parts of the county, while reducing car congestion and advancing our overall economic success plan. Bikeshare is designed for short, point-to-point transportation from one station to another. So what’s the cost? If you’re new to Bikeshare, you can try the system with a $2 single-trip fare. These single 30-minute trip passes are available at any station kiosk (24-hour and 3-day passes are available at kiosks, too). 30-day passes and annual memberships can be purchased online. Fairfax County becomes the fifth jurisdiction in the National Capital Region to join the Capital Bikeshare system, bringing the total number of stations to 435 across the District of Columbia, Arlington County, City of Alexandria and Montgomery County.

 

Fairfax County Snow Guide

Winter weather has finally found us. With the threat of snow and ice becoming a real possibility, Fairfax County has put together a comprehensive winter weather guide, found here. Snow removal is on top of everyone’s mind — we need to get around!

We get complaints every year, but it’s important to know Fairfax County does NOT remove snow from most roads. The Virginia Department of Transportation has that responsibility in nearly every Virginia county. Here are VDOT’s road clearing priorities:

  1. Interstates and most primary roads
  2. Snow emergency routes and heavily trafficked roads
  3. Other secondary roads and residential streets maintained by VDOT

Please contact VDOT for additional information (1-800-FOR ROAD (1-800-367-7623), TTY 711).

If a street within a townhouse, condominium or business/commercial complex is not posted with a state route number, it is a private street that is the responsibility of the homeowner/condominium association or property management company to clear. Please contact your association or the property manager for further information.

It takes a whole community to shovel snow and ice from sidewalks because Mother Nature may take her time to melt it — and your state and local governments simply don’t have the resources to clear sidewalks across 400 square miles of the county. While not legally obligated, we need your help to keep sidewalks safe by clearing snow in front of residential or business property so that all pedestrians, especially school children, those with disabilities and the elderly, may walk safely. Homeowner associations may require members of their communities to clear the private walkways abutting their property. Please contact your association or property manager for further information.

 

Metro SafeTrack

Metro's SafeTrack plan is a comprehensive maintenance effort that will accelerate three years worth of work into approximately one year. The plan significantly expands maintenance time on weekends, weeknights and midday hours and includes 15 "Safety Surges"-- long-duration track outages for major projects in key parts of the system. Please visit http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/fcdot/safetrack/ for more information. Please note that all schedules are subject to change.

 

Boards, Authorities and Commissions (BACs)

Fairfax County offiers its residents many opportunities to serve the community. Citizen participation in local government is essential. Local government is the form of government closest to us in our everyday lives and the one we are most able to influence. Advisory bodies play a very important role in county government. Additional information and a list of county BACs is available at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/bacs. If you are interested in serving on a county board, authority, commission, or committee ("BAC"), please contact our office at 703-560-6946 or email provdist@fairfaxcounty.gov. Please be prepared to provide a current resume. Also, as indicated in the above link, members of some BACs must file financial disclosure statements upon appointment and annually thereafter.

 

Report Potholes to VDOT

If you see a pothole you can report it directly to VDOT by visiting www.virginia.org/travel/citizen.asp, emailing novainfo@vdot.virginia.gov or by calling VDOT's Customer Service Center at 1-800-FOR-ROAD (1-800-367-7623). TTY users, call 711.
