Mark your calendar for Virginia Department of Transportation's Virtual Braddock Road Multimodal information meeting taking place Thursday, January 13 at 7:00 pm. Alternative concepts will be presented for three intersections along the Braddock Road corridor: Rolling Road, Wakefield Chapel Road/Danbury Forest Drive and Burke Lake Road.

This project will construct multimodal and access management improvements along three miles of Braddock Road (Route 620) between Humphries Drive in Burke and Ravensworth Road in Annandale, including the eastbound and westbound Braddock Road ramps to southbound I-495 (Capital Beltway Outer Loop) and a half-mile of Ravensworth Road between Braddock Road and Heritage Drive.

The improvements include:

✅ Intersection enhancements, including at Rolling Road, Wakefield Chapel Road/Danbury Forest Drive and Burke Lake Road
✅ New and upgraded shared-use paths along both sides of Braddock Road
✅ A pedestrian overpass just west of Burke Lake Road

The project's right of way and construction will be done in two phases: Southampton Drive to Ravensworth Road (Phase 1) and Humphries Drive to Southampton Drive (Phase 2).

Within the project limits, Braddock Road averages about 71,000 vehicles a day and Ravensworth Road averages 14,000 based on 2019 data.

Phase 1 is fully funded and Phase 2 is partially funded. The project is financed with federal, state (including Smart Scale) and local funding. Estimated project costs continue to be developed as the proposed improvements and preliminary design are refined.

The Walkinshaw Advisory: Red Flag Law, Omicron Variant, & Neighborhood College

Read the full Advisory at https://conta.cc/3yC20Vg

Dear Neighbor,

Earlier this week, I was proud to join my Board colleagues alongside professionals and advocates to raise awareness of the Emergency Substantial Risk Order (ESRO) a.k.a. Red Flag Law. Virginia's Red Flag law allows for the temporary removal of fi****ms from someone who poses a threat to themselves or others. If you know someone who has access to a firearm and may be a threat to themselves or others, please speak up. Learn more at our Red Flag Law website, https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/topics/red-flag .

As Chair of the Council to End Domestic Violence, my role is to support the professionals and community advocates who are doing the day-to-day work of ending domestic violence in our community. When an abuser has access to a firearm, a homicide is five times more likely to occur. That’s why this mission is so important, and why we need to spread the word about the ESRO law.

Omicron Variant

This holiday season, as we prepare to gather with friends and family, we need to do everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19. The Fairfax Health District is currently at a high level of transmission and case numbers are trending upward.

By now you are likely aware of the rapid spread of the Omicron variant. The Board of Supervisors received a presentation from the Fairfax Health Director this Tuesday. You can review the presentation and watch the video at http://video.fairfaxcounty.gov/player/clip/2290 .

While we still have more to learn about Omicron, we know that vaccination remains the most important public health action to stop the spread of the virus and prevent serious illness or death. I encourage everyone who hasn't yet done so to get their vaccine or booster shot. Boosters are now available for individuals age 16 and up, and there are many vaccination opportunities for residents age 5 and up. Here are a few ways to find vaccinations:

✅ Pharmacies, Grocery Stores and Urgent Care Facilities (vaccines.gov)
✅ Fairfax Health Department Vaccination Centers (guest.vams.cdc.gov)
✅ Virginia Dept. of Health sites at George Mason University and Tysons Corner Mall (vase.vdh.virginia.gov)
✅ INOVA Fairfax Children's Vaccination Clinic (inova.org/vaccine)
✅ School-Based Vaccination Sites (for any child age 5-11) (fairfaxcounty.gov/health/novel-coronavirus/vaccine/school-clinics)

In addition to vaccination, a layered mitigation strategy is recommended, including practices such as physical distancing, good ventilation, appropriate mask-wearing, testing, hand washing, staying home if sick, and following CDC travel guidelines.

Neighborhood College

In partnership with Fairfax County's Neighborhood and Community Services, I am excited to host the return of Neighborhood College starting next February. This free certificate program is a great opportunity to learn more about Fairfax County government and practical ways you can get involved in your community. I encourage you to view the flyer (at bit.ly/3oYcHOx) and sign up today.

As the year comes to a close, unless there is urgent news to share, we will give your news feed a break by not sending an Advisory next week. Happy Holidays!

Red Flag Law / Emergency Substantial Risk Order (ESRO) Information Campaign Kick-off

Yesterday I joined my colleagues on the Board, law enforcement, and professionals working to end su***de & domestic violence to raise awareness about the Emergency Substantial Risk Order (ESRO) a.k.a. Red Flag Law. If you know someone who has access to a firearm and may be a threat to themselves or others, please speak up. Learn more at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/topics/red-flag

As Chair of the Council to End Domestic Violence, my work is to support & facilitate the work of the professionals and volunteer advocates who are out in our community on the front lines each and every day. We know that guns and domestic violence do not mix. Sadly, 4.5 million women in America have been threatened with a firearm. A victim of domestic violence whose abuser has access to a firearm is 5 times more likely to be murdered. That’s why this mission is so important, and why we need to spread the word about the ESRO law which gives us another tool to prevent domestic violence.

I want to thank Public Safety Committee Chair Supervisor Rodney Lusk and Chairman Jeff McKay for initiating this public awareness campaign, Fairfax County Police Department and Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney Steve Descano for facilitating the ESRO process, Fairfax County Department of Family Services' Domestic and Sexual Violence Services and Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board for their work to prevent su***de and domestic violence, and Safer Country for advocating for this campaign.

Hi, I'm sure you are aware of the voter intimidation at the Government Center (early voting). I hope there is a plan to stop this. I'm surprised it was allowed to happen. It was predicted. Will there be a plan to insure voter access/protection at the County satellite polling places and at the polling places on November 3rd?
