The City recently completed a conceptual plan for Old Lee Highway between North Street and Fairfax Circle in the City of Fairfax.
The conceptual planning process occurred over approximately six months and included extensive public involvement. The City held two community meetings to engage the public on the design. At the first public meeting, which was held in March, 2015, the public provided feedback that helped inform the development of conceptual alternatives. These alternatives were then presented at a second public meeting that was held in June. The final result was a recommended conceptual plan for Old Lee Highway. The plan incorporates elements from the 2005 Old Lee Highway Transportation Study and the City’s 2012 Comprehensive Plan.
The proposed concept plan for Old Lee Highway assigns separate treatments for the three segments of the roadway: 1. North Street to Community Center 2. Community Center to Ridge Avenue and 3. Ridge Avenue to Old Pickett Road. In all segments, there are no changes proposed to the number of travel lanes. In segments 1 and 3, the concept plan includes a center median and a protected bicycle lane. Segment 2 proposes a protected bicycle lane without a center median.
