Scott's Run Trail

Project News and Updates

(Updated April 11, 2019) The Scott’s Run Trail project is moving forward, with construction expected to begin in early summer, 2019.

Project Background

The Scott’s Run Trail project will provide 2,676 linear feet of new 8-foot wide pedestrian trail connecting Magarity Road at Westgate Elementary School to Colshire Meadow Drive near the McLean Metro Station. Its purpose is to facilitate pedestrian access to/from the metro station for local residents. The trail will be lighted and include a 90’ bridge over Scotts Run Stream and a 50’ bridge over a tributary. The trail will be located within Scott’s Run Stream Valley Park and Westgate Park, which is primarily within Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) property. This project is lis being designed in partnership with FCPA.

The Scott’s Run Trail project is included in 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. The project is part of the Transportation Priorities Plan approved by the Board on January 28, 2014. 

The estimated project cost is $3.3 million, and is funded by the Federal Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP) and Fairfax County.
