Construction along W&OD promises improvements, requires more care on detours

By Kelley Westenhoff

The photo below from 19 April shows the new refuge island in Herndon where the W&OD crosses Crestview Drive.  You can see a cyclist using it (as viewed from the east).

There also is construction blocking the trail at Van Buren in Herndon with a detour up to the light at Monroe that uses the narrow sidewalks on both sides. It looks like the curb cuts are being reworked and an island is possibly being added.

Finally, there is major construction blocking the W&OD just before Lawson Road southeast (where the Old Mill Kennels are). The detour is a steep gravel side trail at a location where the trail has been washing out. The detour sucks, unless you have 14-year-old knees, mountain bike tires, and no fear of natural consequences.  So, be careful out there.
