Wednesday, June 9—Meeting to discuss HOT lanes extension—Supervisor Foust and Delegate Comstock are hosting a HOT lanes meeting at 7:30 pm at the McLean Community Center, 1234 Ingleside Avenue, McLean to discuss extending the HOT lanes north toward the American Legion bridge. As part of the project, both the Old Dominion and Georgetown Pike Bridges would be replaced. Bike facilities are included in the early plans for these bridges. According to the Trails Plan, the Old Dominion bridge should have bike lanes and a major paved trail on the N side. On the Georgetown Pike bridge, a minor paved trail is indicated on the south side and either a major paved or stonedust trail on the north.
There is some local opposition to the bike facilities. While Supervisor Foust supports these facilities, cyclists need to attend the meeting to speak out in support as well. For more information please contact: Cheryl Patten in the Dranesville District office at (703) 256-0551, or Elise Marsh in Delegate Comstock’s office at (703) 209-3787.
