Gerry Connolly Cross County Trail Improvements Underway in Wakefield Park

FABB tries to stay up on what is happening with bicycle-related developments in the county but sometimes we miss things. So, after posting a recent blog on the need for repairs to the Gerry Connolly Cross County Trail (CCT), we were pleased to hear that, as a matter of fact, the Fairfax County Park Authority has scheduled major repairs for a portion of the CCT (not, however, the section that was the subject of the FABB blog post). 

Area of improvements.
This is great news. The project, which will be starting construction this month, will pave the trail through Wakefield Park between Braddock Road and Accotink Parkway and will include the replacement of one bridge. Completion is anticipated at the end of May 2018

The FCPA wants trail users to know that construction access to the site will be from the park entrances on Accotink Parkway, Mockingbird Drive, and Braddock Road. The work will be phased and detour routes will be available as sections are closed for construction. Signs will be posted and trail users are encouraged to check the project's progress here.  

In addition, trail users should be aware of construction equipment that will be present on the trail in Wakefield Park during construction. As a safety precaution, portions of the existing trail may be occasionally closed during the project.

If you have any questions, please contact Project Manager Som Govender at 703-324-2464.
