Its purpose is to facilitate pedestrian access to/from the metro station for local residents. The trail will be lighted and include a 90’ bridge over Scotts Run Stream and a 50’ bridge over a tributary. The trail will be located within Scott’s Run Stream Valley Park and Westgate Park, which is primarily within Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) property. This project is lis being designed in partnership with FCPA.
The Scott’s Run Trail project is included in the Tysons Metrorail Station Access Management Study (TMSAMS). The goal of the TMSAMS projects is to create a more multi-modal transportation environment by building needed infrastructure to create better access to the Metrorail stations within Tysons. The project is part of the Transportation Priorities Plan approved by the Board on January 28, 2014.
The estimated project cost is $2,075,500, and is funded with Federal Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP) and the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvements Program (CMAQ).
Land acquisition for the project is scheduled for Summer2017, with final design and permitting in Spring 2018. Construction is scheduled to begin in Fall 2019.
