Two pedestrian and bicyclist improvements on Bluemont Way and Green Range Drive in Reston were among more than a dozen projects granted funding earlier this week. by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors earlier this week.
At a meeting on Tuesday (Nov. 1), the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved $5 million for active transportation and maintenance projects, including $2.7 million for two crosswalk improvement projects in each magisterial district.
The projects were identified based on their feasibility within the public right-of-way and the scope of land acquisition needs, design challenges or utility impacts, according to the Fairfax County Department of Transportation.
“The Board set a goal to identify $100 million over a six-year period and directed the Department of Transportation to compile a list of potential projects and develop a prioritization process for implementation,” the department said in a news release.
At the meeting, Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn emphasized that more opportunities would be available for additional projects.
“This is the beginning of this process…If you don’t see your project in here, don’t worry about it,” Alcorn said, providing the only discussion on the matter.
In the Hunter Mill District, a refuge and ramps will be installed at the intersection of Bluemont Way and Explorer Street in Reston Town Center. Ramps and a marked crosswalk will also be installed on Green Range Drive’s intersection at Pyrenees Court.
The Dranesville District projects include a refuge and ramps on Georgetown Pike near Bucks Lane by the Great Falls Library. The facilities will go on the west side of the driveway for El Tio Tex-Mex Grill.
A complete list of all the projects is available online.
The funding package also includes $1 million to maintain trails currently managed by the county and a another $1 million for trails maintained by the Fairfax County Park Authority.
The board also approved a $200,000 local grant match that is required to accept state funding for a safety project at Bush Hill Elementary School in Rose Hill and $100,000 for the police department to buy speed display signs that will be utilized throughout the county.
