Download Map

The Fairfax County Park Authority will soon begin making extensive improvements to the Cross County Trail in Wakefield and Americana parks. The 2008 Park Bond will provide funding in the amount of $330,000 for this project.

The contractors, Finley Asphalt and Accubid Construction Services, Inc., will be mobilizing on site within the next month.  Contingent on the weather, this project will continue throughout the fall with completion anticipated prior to the end of the year.The construction of three new prefabricated fiberglass pedestrian bridges, an existing steel pedestrian bridge repair and associated connecting trails are planned. In addition, approximately 900 feet of existing trail will be renovated as part of this project.

Construction access to the site will be from the park entrances on Accotink Parkway, Mockingbird Drive and Braddock Road. Parking restrictions near that entrance are anticipated in order to facilitate the passage of construction materials and equipment. In addition, construction equipment will be present on the trail in Americana and Wakefield parks during construction. As a safety precaution, portions of the existing trail may be occasionally closed to users during the project.

For more information contact Project Manager Thomas McFarland at 703-324-8688 or the Public Information Office at 703-324-8688.
