The technical meeting at Fairfax County took place on April 22nd at the Fairfax County Government Center. A full crowd was on hand to listen to three speakers from the Fairfax County Department of Transportation lead technical discussions about subjects concerning the the future of the County.
The first presentation, led by Vanessa Aguayo, was about the Fairfax County proposal to construct a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system along the Richmond Highway corridor. Among the topics discussed were the community stakeholder involvement in the project and how BRT might affect future redevelopment of the corridor.
The second presentation, led by Vanessa Holt, was about cut-through mitigation techniques in Fairfax County. Discussed during the presentation were the County’s research into how transportation authorities from across the country mitigate cut-through traffic and the role community stakeholders play in the process of implementing cut-through mitigation techniques.
The third presentation, led by Gregory Fuller, was about the redevelopment plan of Tyson’s Corner into a more connective, multi-modal urban center. The challenges and proposed solutions to redevelopment were discussed during this presentation.
