People riding their bikes and walking to work, school, and around their neighborhood for recreation and fitness now have more options thanks to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) 2017 paving program. This year's efforts will result in new bike infrastructure on more than 19 miles of roads, including 9.7 miles of bike lanes and 1.3 miles of buffered bike lanes.

The bike lanes are a part of VDOT’s repaving program, which gives the Commonwealth and County Departments of Transportation an opportunity to identify, design and implement bike projects on roads that were already included in the repaving plan. Improvements included shifting or narrowing lanes to accommodate bike lanes; placing shared-lane markings, known as “sharrows,” on the road to help increase awareness of cyclist activity; and “road diets,” which reduce travel lanes to help reduce speeding and increase safety.
FCDOT, in partnership with VDOT, hosts community meetings (see links from each district, above) and gathers public feedback on projects throughout the winter and sping prior to construction.
Fairfax County currently has 400 miles of bike lanes, shared-use paths and trails, which includes approximately 70 miles of on-street facilities. The Board of Supervisors approved the Bicycle Master Plan in Fall 2014.
