From Carrington to Tysons Corner — without a car

Fairfax County is conducting a major study to improve trails and bus routes into and around Tysons Corner. This is critical because no commuter parking is planned at the 4 Metro stops that willl open there in 2013. A consultant is collecting input to help the county set priorities for which trails and sidewalks to build first, where bus routes should run and stops should be placed. The county’s Department of Transportation acknowleges that major barriers face anyone from Carrington or adjoining neighborhoods who try to enter Tysons Corner on foot or bike along Route 7.
 

Please watch the brief video and take the online survey accessible at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/fcdot/tmsams/.  On Question 19, Carrington residents should note the importance of giving priority to  trail/sidewalk construction at locations 2, 44, 46, 47 and 49.
