Northern Virginia Transportation Authority to Host Public Hearing
Two Alexandria Projects to Be Considered in Six-Year Plan

The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) will hold a public hearing on Thursday, January 10 at 6 p.m., in the George Mason High School Auditorium, 7124 Leesburg Pike in Falls Church, to solicit feedback on future transportation projects planned for the City and the region. The NVTA is requesting specific input on its proposed initial Six Year Plan for Fiscal Years 2008 to 2010.

The projects included in NVTA’s plan are a mix of highway, transit, bicycle, pedestrian and multimodal. It also includes funding for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority and the Virginia Railway Express.

Proposed projects for the City of Alexandria include:

  1. A project to rebuild the King Street Metro parking lot and bus loading area, which will reconfigure the existing parking lot, maximize bus bay capacity and improve the pedestrian environment within the King Street station complex.
     
  2. A project for the Holmes Run Greenway, which will allow the City to make physical improvements that will address ongoing maintenance issues and security concerns, and improve bicyclist and pedestrian access.

Additional information on the Six Year Plan is available at www.thenovaauthority.org.

The public is invited to provide feedback on these projects at the public hearing on January 10. NVTA will begin hearing comments at 6 p.m. Individuals may speak for a maximum of three minutes and organizations may speak for a maximum of five minutes. The deadline to submit speaker slips is 7 p.m. Written comments may be submitted by 3 p.m. on Wednesday, January 9. Comments may be submitted to Christopher Zimmerman, Chairman, NVTA; 2100 Clarendon Blvd., Suite 300; Arlington, VA 22201. For more information, e-mail The Authority@TheNoVaAuthority.org.
