About the Project
This project will improve the pedestrian/bicycle trail adjacent to Fairfax County Parkway between Leesburg Pike (Route 7) and Lee Highway (Route 29). The current condition of the trail has rough surfaces, potholes and large cracks. The repairs will improve safety, rideability and durability of the trail. The width of the trail will remain the same.
Construction activities include asphalt patching, crack sealing and ADA ramp repair/installation along the pedestrian/bicycle trail adjacent to Fairfax County Parkway.
Trail traffic will be impacted as segments will be temporarily closed between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday to Friday.
Construction will begin in the north near Rt. 7 and work south. Only trail segment(s) currently under construction will be closed on a daily basis. On-trail signs will alert users of temporarily closed segments and two-week ‘look ahead’ schedules will be posted on this page. Cyclists and pedestrians should choose an alternate route during the rolling daily closures.
Work should have minimal effect on motorized traffic. Occasional right-lane and frequent shoulder closures should be expected during construction.
Roads signs will also warn pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists.
QR Code and Trail Closures
The construction team developed a unique communication plan for rolling trail closures this spring and summer. When trail users come to a block marked "closed" they will also find a map with alternate routes and a QR code (quick response code) for their smartphones to get more information on the project. Two-week ‘look ahead’ schedules will be posted on this page so trail commuters and regular users are aware of planned closures in advance.
