Mr. Chairman: It has come to my attention that the County
does not have a policy on creating new bicycle lanes
during major asphalt maintenance on our roadways. However,
I do understand that significant engineering must occur
to plan such lanes.
than investigate this matter as it relates to only one
road in Providence District, I believe that the Board's
Transportation Committee should review the policy and
procedures associated with planning bicycle lanes and
coordinate with the Virginia Department of Transportation
(VDOT) on this effort.
I move that this matter be referred to the Board's Transportation
Committee for review and further move that, if warranted,
the County Department of Transportation and the Non-motorized
Transportation Committee, as well as VDOT, be involved
in this review and that the Committee report the whole
of its findings to the Board.
