VDOT to repave major sections of Fairfax Co Parkway Trail

Major repairs to the Fairfax County Parkway Trail will finally be made this Fall. Mike Tessitore of VDOT attended the FABB meeting this month to discuss details of the project. There will be two phases, from Route 7 to Alliance Dr (near VDOT HQ) and from Alliance Dr south to Rolling Rd.

Portions of the segments needing to be repaved are in the Fairfax Co right-of-way so the county needs to fund those sections. VDOT has committed to funding repairs in their right-of-way and they are hoping to reach agreement with the county on their sections.

Unfortunately the many dangerous crossings of the exit/entrance ramps will not be included in this project. Those will require additional funds and engineering design work.

Here's the briefing presented at the meeting, Fairfax County Parkway Trail and ADA Ramp Repair Project.

Why is VDOT asking Fairfax County to fund trail maintenance and repairs on the portions of ROW owned by the County? Does VDOT ask the County to fund any maintenance or repairs for the Parkway proper?

Is only Phase One repaving scheduled for 2014? If so, when is Phase Two scheduled?
