This project is restoring about 5,500 linear feet of Pike Branch and tributaries between Telegraph Road and Old Telegraph Road. 

Some preliminary work on Pike Branch began in support of the emergency road repairs, including the removal of trees. However, the stream restoration project includes a reforestation plan with a mix of native vegetation, including trees.

In October 2018, Fairfax County hosted a "Pardon Our Dust" meeting to present information on the County's adjacent project to restore Pike Branch at Ridgeview Park. VDOT participated in the County’s meeting to share information on VDOT’s Pike Branch restoration project. View VDOT presentation.

In December 2018, a community stream walk and public meeting were held.
