Project News and Updates
Community Meeting Held April 12; Public Comment Period Closed May 3, 2016
Fairfax County Department of Transportation hosted a community meeting to discuss proposed bike lanes in the Braddock District on Tuesday, April 12, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at Canterbury Woods Elementary School, 4910 Willet Drive, Annandale. Representatives from FCDOT and VDOT talked about the plans for the project, which not only included bike lanes, but also safety, road diets and more.
As part of the Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT) 2016 summer road repaving program, there are several bicycle projects proposed for Braddock District. The improvements are planned for: Ravensworth Road, Coffer Woods Road, Patriot Drive, Guinea Road, Queensberry Avenue, and Heritage Drive.
Additional Information for Heritage Drive
The current proposal from FCDOT and VDOT for the Heritage Drive section does not reduce the number of vehicular lanes on Heritage drive down to one in each direction. The number of vehicular lanes and parking spaces will remain the same on Heritage Drive except for a short 0.2-mile segment between Rectory Lane and Patriot Drive (map). The proposed design to the north and south of the segment retains the existing number of travel and parking lanes, but reduces the widths of these elements to create space to include a bike lane.
