FCDOT to Install Speed Hump on Colts Brook Drive in Reston

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has approved the installation of a speed hump on Colts Brook Drive in the westernmost part of Reston.

According to information provided within the board’s April 4 meeting package, the hump will be located adjacent to 2320 Colts Brook Drive. A Reston Association pathway between the Colts Brook Recreation Area and the Tournament Recreation Area crosses Colts Brook Drive just south of where the hump will be installed.

Colts Brook Drive runs between Fox Mill Road and Sunrise Valley Drive, with the hump to be installed south of the intersection with Thunder Chase Drive. The posted speed limit on the road is 25 mph.

Information provided to the Board of Supervisors indicates that there is community support for the traffic-calming measure. The Fairfax County Department of Transportation has been instructed to do the work “as soon as possible,” with a budget of $7,000.

The project is part of the county’s Residential Traffic Administration Program. Also through the program, the board in 2015 approved additional speeding fines on Thunder Chase Drive in the same neighborhood. On the other side of Fairfax County Parkway, they did the same on Rosedown Drive in 2016.
