FCDOT will hold the next round of public feedback this spring for the Fairfax County Parkway/Franconia-Springfield Parkways Study. Although the process of moving the study to a project may be years - or decades - in the future, public feedback is critical to ensuring that these long-range plans meet the needs of all stakeholders.

If your New Year’s resolutions include decreasing stress, getting fit, saving money or going green, then here are some transportation ideas for you in the new year:
1. Ride your bike or use bikeshare! To work, to the store, to lunch, to the library, to the park
2. Carpooling = fewer cars on the road, appreciated by Mother Nature and your fellow commuters
3. Taking transit helps increase the number of steps you take
4. Vanpool – for longer-distance commuters, rewards available
5. Telework – because it’s hard to be stressed in bunny slippers
6. Compressed work week – Turn your five-day commuting week into four
7. Commuter benefits – check with your employer about implementing commuter-friendly benefits
FCDOT wishes everyone a safe, happy and healthy 2020!

Thanks Fairfax County Police Department for the safety reminders!
