Temporary Closure and Detour of W&OD Trail at Idylwood Park Starting On or About Feb. 24
Closure necessary for utility work for Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project

FAIRFAX – The Washington & Old Dominion Trail (W&OD Trail) will close for about one week on or about Feb. 24 near Idylwood Park (between Virginia Lane and the trail bridge over I-495) for utility work for the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

Cyclists and pedestrians will be detoured as follows:

  • Pedestrians will be detoured through Idylwood Park around the closed section of the W&OD Trail using footpaths and the parking lot. This detour will be open during park operating hours – from one half hour before sunrise to one half hour after sunset. 
  • Cyclists will be directed to Virginia Lane and Nottingham Drive to detour around the closed section of trail. This on-road detour uses the W&OD Trail access at the end of Nottingham Drive.

All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement conditions occur.
