Petition for Safe Crossings at Fair Ridge Drive & Monument Drive sign now

1) We consider the intersection of Fair Ridge Drive and Monument Drive to be dangerous, regardless of whether VDOT or the County classify it as such.

2) This danger arises from the sharp bend in the Monument Drive to the west, creating a blind to those crossing Monument Drive from south to north; it also arises from the hill to the east, which creates a blind for those crossing in either direction.

3) This danger also arises from the high speed at which drivers travel on Monument Drive. Since there are no impediments to travel between West Ox Road and the Fairfax County Parkway, drivers often speed through this corridor.

4) Many of the services within our neighborhood that those of us on the south side of the street rely on and enjoy lie across Monument Drive. This includes the swimming pool (a short walk up Fair Ridge), the Fairfax Towne Center shopping center, which offers movie theaters, an ice cream shop, banking, restaurants, and groceries. Additionally, all bus stops for the Fairfax Connector bus line through our neighborhood are on the north side of Monument, requiring traversal by commuters during peak traffic hours.

5) Therefore, a safe and convenient crossing point is needed. We ask that the County either A) reduce speeds on the street through traffic calming measures such as the elimination of turn lanes, the introduction of textured driving surfaces, etc; or B) install a traffic signal with crosswalk triggers so that children and commuters, ice cream lovers, movie-goers, grocery shoppers - in short, all of us, can get where we need to go safely and efficiently without having to drive to cross this road.
