2017 Proposed Hunter Mill Bike Lanes
Project News and Updates
Community Meeting Set for March 16, 2017
Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will host a community meeting to discuss proposed bike lanes in the Hunter Mill District on Thursday, March 16, 2017, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., in the cafeteria of Dogwood Elementary School, 12300 Glade Drive, Reston. The purpose of the meeting is to gather input on various proposals to improve traffic safety, bicycling and the pedestrian environment in Reston. Representatives from FCDOT and VDOT will present plans for the projects, which include sharrows/shared lane markings, bike lanes, crosswalks and pedestrian improvements.
As part of the Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT) 2017 repaving schedule, the following areas in the Hunter Mill District are under review:
- North Shore Drive: Ring Road to Oak Spring Way - narrow travel lanes; add bike lanes and sharrows
- Twin Branches Road: Lawyers Road to South Lakes Drive - narrow travel lanes and add bike lanes
- Colts Neck Road: Reston Parkway to Glade Drive - narrow travel lanes; add bike lanes and sharrows
- Colts Neck Road: Glade Drive to Sunrise Valley Drive - implement a road diet to improve safety; add bike lanes; and improve pedestrian safety by adding crosswalks and reducing the number of travel lanes to cross
Note: Glade Drive will not be discussed at this meeting. A separate meeting will be scheduled if any proposed changes are brought forward.
The proposed improvements are limited to changes that can be made with roadway striping as part of the repaving process. For more information about road diets, read the Federal Highway Department Road Diet Informational Guide.
