Mount Vernon Memorial Highway Trail Meeting Scheduled

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation will host a community information meeting on the Mount Vernon Memorial Highway Trail project from 7:00 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, March 14, 2018. The meeting will be in the auditorium of Mount Vernon High School, 8515 Old Mount Vernon Road in Alexandria. Local residents and other potential trail users will be able to learn about the project and give feedback to FCDOT before it proceeds with a more detailed design.       

The project, which is still in the design phase, will create two miles of 10-foot wide path to fill in missing segments of the National Heritage Scenic Trail and will include a pedestrian bridge over Dogue Creek. Other improvements include marked crosswalks and curb ramps that meet American with Disabilities Act standards. Once complete, the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail will provide a continuous facility for bicyclists and pedestrians along the Mount Vernon Memorial Highway from Route 1 to the Mount Vernon Estates.

FABB encourages local bicyclists to attend and speak up on behalf of better bike infrastructure and multimodal transportation options. If unable to attend, community members can give feedback online via the comment form on the Mount Vernon Memorial Highway Trail project page. Comments will be accepted through April 8, 2018.
