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. 

Repairs will improve safety, rideability and durability of the trail and include asphalt patching, crack sealing and ADA ramp repair/installation. Trail width will remain the same.

Traffic Impacts

Trail traffic will be impacted as segments will be temporarily closed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Construction began near Rt. 7 and has been working south. Only trail segments under construction will be closed on a daily basis. On-trail signs will alert users of temporarily closed segments and ‘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 Rolling Trail Closures

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. ‘Look ahead’ schedules will be posted on this page so trail commuters and regular users are aware of planned closures in advance.
