Fairfax Active Transportation Plan

Fairfax Active Transportation Plan

 

The Fairfax Bicycle Master Plan was prepared by the Fairfax County Department of Transportation. Guidance and support for the development of this Plan was also provided by a Bicycle Advisory Committee and several stakeholder groups.

Transform 66

 

Plans for Northern Virginia’s Interstate 66 expansion and improvement are underway.  This project will turn the existing interstate into a multi-modal corridor, allowing for quicker and more reliable traffic flow.  The proposed infrastructure changes would incorporate:

• Three regular lanes in each direction
• Two express lanes in each direction
• High-frequency bus service with predictable travel times
• Direct access between the express lanes and new or expanded commuter lots

Currently, this is is still in the planning and sourcing phase. Construction is slated to begin in 2017.

The area of I-66 this will affect is the 25-mile stretch from U.S. Route 15 in Haymarket to I-495/Capital Beltway.

ALL commuters should expect heavy delays and crowding at Metro stations, and on all major commuting corridors in Northern Virginia including I-66, I-495, Dulles Toll Road, and I-95.
