Annandale bicycle connection to be closed for several months

Trail detour during construction
The boardwalk in Holmes Run Stream Valley Park near Luria Park, connecting Holmes Run Dr with Fallowfield Dr/Brad St, will soon be repaired by the Fairfax County Parkway Authority. This is a popular connection for bicyclists in the Annandale area, located south of Route 50 and east of Gallows Road.

The Park Authority will close the trail during construction. Work will begin this month and is projected to last until the end of 2013.

A detour is identified on a map (right) posted at the trail, but we've asked for additional signage to guide cyclists through the detour, especially when the project begins. It can be difficult to look at a map and remember a route after seeing it for the first time. Detour signs should be placed at each decision point/intersection.

The detour includes two flights of stairs. While there is a ramp that can be used for rolling the bike while climbing the stairs, we've asked if anything can be done to make the trip more feasible, especially for someone who would have a difficult time hauling their bike up the ramp.

If you know more about this project, please leave a comment.
