Meeting Tonight on Burke Centre VRE Connector TrailTonight Fairfax County is holding an information meeting on Phase IV of the Burke Centre VRE Connector Trail. The trail will provide better pedestrian and bicycle access to the Burke Centre VRE station from neighborhoods west of Roberts Parkway. The meeting tonight, March 9, begins at 6:30 p.m., at the Oaks Community Center, 5708 Oak Leather Drive, Burke (map).
From the county's Burke Centre VRE Connector page:
The new pedestrian/bicycle facility will include the following:
- A 1,200 ft. long asphalt trail through the wooded area north of Oak Bluff Court. Retaining walls and an open drainage system are required along this stretch to accommodate the trail. The trail will connect to the western terminus of Premier Court.
- A 600 ft. long concrete sidewalk along the south side of Premier Court. Other improvements in this area include curb and gutter, new pavement, parking modifications and on-road bike lanes.
- A crosswalk that will connect pedestrians from the new sidewalk on the south side of Premier Court to an existing sidewalk on the north side of Premier Court. On-road pavement markings will be added to Premier Court from the crosswalk to the Burke VRE Station
