Meeting on paving Cross County Trail in Wakefield Park is ThursdayThe public meeting to discuss paving a portion of the Cross County Trail in Wakefield Park will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at Kings Glen Elementary School Cafeteria, 5401 Danbury Forest Drive, Springfield, VA. See the earlier FABB blog post for more info. The paved surface will be easier to maintain and provide a much better surface for most trail users. Even so, some opposition is expected. Cyclists are encouraged to attend the meeting to learn more about the project and voice your support.

The Gerry Connolly Cross County Trail is one of the most heavily used trails systems in Fairfax County. The Park Authority’s project includes paving approximately 7,800 linear feet of the trail in Wakefield Park between Braddock Road and Americana Park. The proposed route will follow the existing gravel trail, will be approximately eight to ten feet wide, and will be designed to minimize the impact to natural resources contained within the park. The Park Authority’s project team includes environmental and historic resource professionals who will be closely involved in the design process and will work to ensure that any impacts are limited.
For comments or questions about the project, please call Project Manager Bill Boston at 703-324-2710 or send email to William.firstname.lastname@example.org.
