A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held to celebrate a recently completed segment of trail along Georgetown Pike Trail in Great Falls. The County recently completed construction on over 1400 linear feet of new asphalt trail along Georgetown Pike in Great Falls. The new segment extends from Falls Chase Court, where it connects to existing trail, to Seneca Road. This new trail is part of a larger effort to improve pedestrian access throughout Great Falls and to connect the broader community to the Village Centre.
Community Meeting Held Oct. 4; Public Comments Due Oct. 27, 2017
The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) held a community meeting concerning the Georgetown Pike Trail Phase IV project on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017, at the Great Falls Library, 9830 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls, at 7-9 p.m., in the Large Meeting Room.
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.
FCDOT solicited public comments at a community meeting held on March 22, 2017, regarding effects on historic resources. The Virginia Department of Historic Resources (VDHR) issued a determination of "no adverse effect" in June 2017. The project is moving forward with final design.
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 that will be discussed at the October 4, 2017, meeting. Click on the image below to expand.
