    1. Battlefield Bypass
      • Jack Van Dop, FHWA Project Director, gave a presentation on the Battlefield Bypass at the 20 September 2004 meeting of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisor's Transportation Subcommittee. No new information was conveyed.
      • The Board member's concerns included:
        • The closure of the interior routes might adversely impact the residents living within the boundaries of the park as their access to public roads would be constrained. They were assured that the Park Service had worked with those residents to resolve their concerns.
        • The usual process for transportation improvements is not to select a preferred alternative route until after evaluating public comments from the Draft Environmental Impact Statement Public Hearing. Although this is a joint Park Service/Highway Administration effort, the Park Service is taking the lead, and their process calls for the selection of a preferred alternative prior to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement Public Hearing.
      • Jeff Parnes, the Sully District Transportation Advisory Commissioner, reported the Sully District Council's position in favor of the either alternatives C or D in Fairfax County without regard to the alignment in Prince William County as well as its objection to either alternative G or the relocation of Rt 29 onto I-66.
