Senator Cuccinelli actively opposes Stringfellow bicycle facility

FABB and others have been working with Fairfax County and VDOT to save the proposed on-road bike facility on Stringfellow Road. The original 5’ bike lanes have been reduced to 3’ wide curb lanes. We prefer the bike lanes but understand some neighborhood concerns about the amount of right of way needed for the road, bike facility, trail and sidewalk.

Now Senator Ken Cuccinelli has sent a letter to residents along Stringfellow Road telling them that he is working to "eliminate bike lanes on the road." He and other local politicians are holding a public meeting on Wed., Oct. 3 at Rocky Run Elementary School, 4400 Stringfellow Rd, Chantilly, VA 20151 (map) at 7 p.m. He is “interested in your continuing input so that we may be effective advocates for you.” Please contact Sen. Cuccinelli, Supervisory Frey, Supervisor Elaine McConnell, Chairman Connolly and your county supervisor to ask for their support for the Stringfellow on-road bike facility.

On International Bike and Walk to School Day, speak out at the public meeting to let Sen. Cuccinelli and others know that cyclists will ride on Stringfellow Road with our without the bike facility; now is the time to make their journey safer and to help make our streets complete streets, for everyone who uses the road.
