Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) Director Tom Biesiadny announced the selection of Adam Lind as the county’s new Bicycle Program Manager in the Capital Projects and Traffic Engineering Division. Lind has been with FCDOT since 2012 and replaces Charlie Strunk who retired in January 2015. He begins in his new position immediately.
As Lind takes the helm at managing the county’s Bicycle Program, he continues to build upon his years of experience working on developing bicycle and pedestrian projects in Fairfax County. During his tenure with the county, Lind has worked on the development of the county’s Bicycle Master Plan and has been an integral part of the project pre-scoping, development review, and project implementation processes of multiple bicycle and pedestrian initiatives.
“Looking to the future, the Bicycle Master Plan will guide the development of bike lanes and trails that will help connect neighborhoods to the places residents want to go,” said Lind. “Our goal is to create a connected and safe bicycle network that will allow people to rethink their commute. I look forward to working with the community to make this a reality.”
Most recently, Lind has worked on coordinating the implementation of bike lanes throughout the county as part of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) repaving program and the establishment of a bike trail along the I-66 corridor outside the Capital Beltway (I-495) as part of the Express Lanes project. One of his early tasks in his new position will be to coordinate an implementation plan for priority projects in the Bicycle Master Plan.
Prior to joining FCDOT, Lind completed internships with the Town of Chapel Hill, N.C.; City of Blacksburg, Va.; and Montgomery County, Md. He holds a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from Virginia Tech and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
