Trail Repair Work on Fairfax County Parkway Trail
|Sections of Parkway trail being|
repaired north of W&OD Trail
When the Parkway trail was repaired in 2014 VDOT coordinated closely with FABB in advance of repairs on sections of the trail. VDOT also posted signs showing nearby bike routes that could be used for detours. During that time we asked that trail users be allowed to pass through the work areas when feasible. That arrangement worked well. Unfortunately there has been almost no coordination this year.
We hope that in the future the entire trail will be repaved, possibly in long sections. Patching small 2-3 foot sections of the trial is costly, takes significant manpower, and does not last as long as repaving.
If you hear of problems related to this maintenance work, please either comment below or send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
