The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will host a community meeting to discuss proposed street design improvements in the Providence District on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the cafeteria of Kilmer Middle School, 8100 Wolftrap Road, Vienna.

The purpose of the meeting is to gather input on various proposals to improve traffic safety, bicycling and the pedestrian environment. Representatives from FCDOT and VDOT will present plans for the projects, which include sharrows/shared lane markings, bike lanes, crosswalks and pedestrian improvements.

As part of the Virginia Department of Transportation’s (VDOT) 2017 repaving schedule, bike lanes and sharrows have been proposed for Woodford Road from Old Courthouse Road to Electric Avenue.

The proposed improvements are limited to changes that can be made with roadway striping as part of the repaving process. Community members are invited to give feedback on traffic safety, bicycling and the pedestrian environment on this segment of Woodford Road in the Providence District.
