2017 Proposed Hunter Mill Street Design Improvements

Project News and Updates

Community Meeting Held March 16; Comments Due March 31, 2017

Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) hosted 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 was to gather input on various proposals to improve traffic safety, bicycling and the pedestrian environment in Reston. Representatives from FCDOT and VDOT presented plans for the projects, which include sharrows/shared lane markings, bike lanes, crosswalks and pedestrian improvements.

Project Background

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 Wiehle Avenue - two options:

  • Keep existing parking but narrow travel lanes to add bike lanes and shared-lane markings; or
  • Restrict on-street parking to one side of the street from Ivy Oak Square to Wiehle Avenue. Add bike lanes in both directions for this segment. Keep existing parking from Ivy Oak Square to Ring Road. Narrow travel lanes to add bike lanes and shared-lane markings.
  • North Shore Road Design Plans (4 pages)

In addition, a road diet is proposed near Tall Oaks Village Center, as approved in the rezoning.  

Note: A separate meeting will be scheduled if any proposed changes are brought forward regarding Glade Drive.

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.
