The Columbia Pike Pedestrian and Bicycle Study analyzed the 4.5 miles long Columbia Pike corridor between Annandale and Bailey’s Crossroads and provides recommendations to improve walkability and bicycle access.
Due to the complexity of the corridor, the Fairfax County Bicycle Master Plan identified Columbia Pike as a Policy Road, which required further study to make sound recommendations for infrastructure improvements along the arterial corridor.
The Columbia Pike Pedestrian and Bicycle Study provides both short-term and long-term recommendations that will guide infrastructure improvements and development in the future.
The study team held two, pop-up community engagement events on April 14, 2018 at grocery stores in Annandale and Bailey’s Crossroads to gather information on existing conditions, problem locations, and short- and long-term improvements that will make bicycling and walking safer in this corridor. Attendees ranged from experienced cyclists, to local pedestrians, to driving commuters.
The final report for this project was completed in July 2018.
The Metropolitan Council of Governments sponsored the study through the Transportation-Land Use Connections Program.
