Elmdale Walkway - Construction will begin soon on the Elmdale Walkway Project, a walkway spanning the south side of Elmdale Road, from Old Columbia Pike to Braddock Road. The walkway project will consist of a 6' asphalt walkway, accompanied by drainage improvements. During construction, some plantings along the Park Authority property will be impacted. Project engineers have worked closely with a golf course landscape architect to ensure that the necessary replacement or relocation of these plantings will occur to protect neighboring properties from golf balls. It is anticipated that the relocated plantings will improve the screening that currently exists. Completion of this project will provide a safe pedestrian facility in this heavily used area.

Immunize Yourself Against the Flu! – It's not too late to prepare for the cold and flu season!  If you have not done so already, get a flu shot and safeguard yourself this winter, and minimize the chance of spreading the flu virus.  This is vital because not everyone can receive flu vaccine, and some people are at greater risk of flu-related complications and death.  To learn what you need to know about the upcoming flu season, visit the Fairfax County Health Department's Web site at, or call 703-246-2411, TTY 711.
