In January of 2001, the Board of Supervisors entered into an agreement with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to construct a pedestrian trail along the north side of Georgetown Pike from River Bend Road westward to Seneca Road, a distance of approximately 4.2 miles. Phase I, located in the Village Center and Phase II, between Utterback Store Road and Falls Chase Court, have been completed.
Phase III will complete a 250’ long section between Falls Chase Court and Falls Bridge Lane. Click on the image below to expand.
This segment of the trail is the recipient of federal funds. Because of the federal funding, and because Georgetown Pike itself is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this segment of the trail must comply with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. In addition to presenting design features, FCDOT is actively soliciting comments regarding what effect, if any, the proposed trail is likely to have on historic resources in the vicinity.
Phase IV will complete a 1200’ long section between Falls Bridge Lane and Seneca Road. Local funds are utilized for this project. Design elements of the trail will be discussed at the March 22 meeting. Click on the image below to expand.
When these two phases are completed, the trail will be continuous from Utterback Store Road to Seneca Road, a distance of approximately 0.8 miles.
The project scope is currently undergoing a federally-required environmental process/review prior to design. Upon completion of the review, a project schedule will be developed.
