Project News and Updates
The Ashgrove Trail Extension project is part of the Third Four-Year Transportation Program approved by the BOS on 7/10/12. Project funding was included in the Transportation Priority Plan (TPP) update approved by the Board 12/3/19. Coordination with the Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) and the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) is ongoing in an effort to combine or collocate facilities to minimize impacts.
The project is currently on-hold as a result of community input regarding environmental impacts of the trail, stream valley restoration, and sanitary sewer replacement projects. Additional engineering anticipated to address pending community input.
The Ashgrove Trail Extension project is one of the approved projects originating from 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.
As proposed, the Ashgrove Trail Extension will be located in the Tysons West area, and will connect cyclists and pedestrians from the Tysons Green community to Westwood Center Drive, and ultimately to the Spring Hill Metrorail Station in Tysons.
This project is locally funded and in coordination with the Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA). Click on the image below to expand:
