Ribbon Cutting for a Pedestrian and Bicycle Traffic Counter

Officials from Fairfax County and the Reston Bicycle Club will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, April 27, 2016, to celebrate the installation of a new automatic bicycle and pedestrian traffic counter on the Washington & Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail in Reston.

The event will be held near the intersection of the W&OD and Old Reston Avenue at 10 a.m.

The counter, valued at $7,000, was purchased by the Reston Bicycle Club and donated to Fairfax County to help collect information about pedestrian and bicyclist traffic.

“The counter provides an opportunity to better document the usage of these modes of transportation, and will support the county’s planning and investment in future bicycle and pedestrian improvements,” said Adam Lind, Fairfax County Bicycle Program Manager.

A small number of parking spaces are available at the event site. For further information about the ceremony or to request reasonable ADA accommodations, contact Fairfax County Department of Transportation at 703-877-5600, TTY 711.
