In November, we posted about our efforts to get county/state funding to upgrade the intersection at Walker Rd and Georgetown Pike in the Village center. These upgrades will provide safe pedestrian crosswalks for walkers and bikers at all 4 corners, as well as allow right turns on red coming south on Walker Rd. These improvements will improve safety and traffic flow through the center of town for vehicles and pedestrians.
In late December, we learned from Supervisor Foust that this project is deemed worthy of future funding, but unfortunately it will not be funded at this time. Projectsthat were included in the County's "Transportation Project Priorities" but not fully funded in 2004 will get first priority.
We encourage citizens who deem this a worthwhile project to continue to communicate their interest in getting this project completed to the Supervisor and to Fairfax County VDOT.
