Bicycle/pedestrian improvements to be considered for Columbia Pike

Columbia Pike in Annandale.
The Fairfax County Department of Transportation is studying options for enhancing bicycling and pedestrian facilities along Columbia Pike between Little River Turnpike and the Arlington border.

Columbia Pike is classified as a “use caution” road within the Fairfax County bicycle network. That means the road is too narrow and there is too much traffic for on-road bike lanes. As a result, the enhancements proposed are expected to consist of a combination of bikeable sidewalks, the use of service roads, and crosswalks.
