From John W. Foust, Dranesville District Supervisor:

In response to the concerns of residents throughout the McLean area, I have been working with Delegate Kathleen Murphy and Senator Barbara Favola, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT), and Fairfax County Police Department (FCPD) on options for addressing the backups and cut-through traffic caused by the lack of sufficient capacity on the American Legion Bridge.

In partnership with the McLean Citizens Association, we are hosting a community meeting on September 18 at which VDOT and FCDOT staff will address numerous suggestions that have been received for improving traffic problems in the area. Residents will also have the opportunity to share their concerns and provide comments on the proposals. Meeting details are included below.
