Temporary Realignment of W&OD Trail at Idylwood Park Starting On or About January 14
Realignment necessary for construction related to Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project
FAIRFAX – The Washington & Old Dominion Trail (W&OD Trail) near Idylwood Park (between Virginia Lane and the trail bridge over I-495) in Falls Church will be realigned slightly to the south of the current trail for approximately five months beginning on or about Thursday, January 14, through June 2021.
The trail is being shifted temporarily while crews construct the new, permanent trail alignment to accommodate new ramps as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. Crews will also construct a retaining wall to support the widening of the ramp from I-66 West to I-495 South during this period.
All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement conditions occur.
The W&OD Trail adjacent to Idlywood Park in Falls Church will be temporarily realigned for approximately five months beginning around January 14. The temporary trail will be located just slightly south of the current trail alignment adjacent to I-66 West.
