Introduction and Overview
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted the County's first Bicycle Master Plan on October 28, 2014. The plan recommends what steps should be taken to improve the existing transportation system and make Fairfax County bicycle friendly. It includes a recommended network of both on-road and off-road facilities that will serve as a bicycle transportation network. It recommends how bicycle friendly design can be incorporated into future roadway projects, transit projects, and it will provide policy guidance to both the public and private sectors on establishing and promoting bicycling as a mode of transportation.
Phase I: The study area for this phase includes the greater Tysons Corner area, an approximate three mile radius surrounding Tysons Corner including portions of McLean, the Town of Vienna, Wolf Trap, the City of Falls Church, the neighborhoods of Dunn Loring, Pimmit Hills, and the W&OD Trail. This phase was completed in May of 2011. This Phase I Tysons Bicycle Master plan was not officially adopted by the Board of Supervisors, but many recommendations were included in the Countywide Bicycle Master Plan that was adopted by the Board of Supervisors on October 28, 2014.
Phase II: This phase includes the rest of Fairfax County and incorporates recommendations from Phase I. This phase broadly addresses bicycle safety and connectivity throughout the County. It builds from the policy analysis conducted in Phase I, Phase II will recommend countywide policies and programs needed to support bicycling for all age groups and skill levels.
