Mount Vernon Memorial Highway Trail Project

COMMENT PERIOD CLOSES APRIL 8, 2018

A public meeting for the Mount Vernon memorial Highway Trail project was held on March 14, 2018.

 

PROJECT BACKGROUND

Mount Vernon Memorial Highway Trail Map PreviewIn accordance to the Countywide Trails Plan, Fairfax County Department of Transportation’s Mount Vernon Memorial Highway Trail Project completes missing segments of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail between Richmond Highway (Route 1) and Southwood Drive for a length of approximately two miles. Once complete, the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail will provide a continuous facility for pedestrians and cyclists along Mount Vernon Memorial Highway from Route 1 to the Mount Vernon Estates.

The project will consist of constructing a 10 FT Shared Use Path within the missing segments, which includes a pedestrian bridge adjacent to the Mount Vernon Memorial Highway bridge crossing Dogue Creek. In addition, this project will improve pedestrian crossing by providing marked crosswalks and curb ramps approved by the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations and standards.
