Project Schedule

The project launched in the summer of 2020 and is expected to be complete by the end of 2022. The project has been split into two district phases:

  • Phase One includes the development of a vision statement with supporting goals and objectives as well as a thorough inventory and assessment of previous planning efforts and existing conditions. This phase will also include the development of a Systematic Safety Program Plan.
  • Phase Two includes the development of active transportation network recommendations and facility selection toolkits, coordination with and potential updates to the Comprehensive Plan, and an implementation approach that includes policy, program, and project prioritization strategies.
  • A robust community engagement and awareness effort will be continuous during both phases of the project.

Project Overview

Fairfax County is continuing its efforts to prioritize transportation for all with its launch of the ActiveFairfax Transportation Plan. Active transportation is self-propelled, human-powered travel including activities such as walking, biking, rolling (scooter/wheelchair/stroller), hiking, running and riding.

Through collaboration with partners across the region, the ActiveFairfax Transportation Plan will:

  • provide an engagement effort that provides a wide variety of outreach tools and activities that aim to ensure all County residents’ mobility concerns, needs, and desires are understood and considered;
  • develop a vision to help shape the future of active transportation in Fairfax County; 
  • consolidate previous active transportation planning efforts into one cohesive document that is easy-to-digest and track performance;
  • encourage livable street design through the development of tools and products that ensures our transportation network connects people to where they live, work, play, learn and take transit; 
  • support access to safe, comfortable and connected active transportation facilities (such as shared-use paths, bike lanes and sidewalks) for people of all ages, incomes and abilities;
  • provide clear direction to improve safety for our most vulnerable transportation users; and
  • begin the planning process to update the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan.
