“A detour route has been identified using existing trails in the Colvin Run Stream Valley, Lake Fairfax and W&OD parks. Signs and trail markers labeled ‘Detour’ will be posted along the new route, and a map will be available for download from the Park Authority Web site.”
The work will be completed in September, and will remain in place for the duration of the closure.
And more good news
Following construction of the rail project, the Fairfax County Park Authority will begin a previously planned project to improve and resurface the trail under the Dulles Toll Road.
The bad news
the section of the Cross County Trail that passes beneath the Dulles Toll Road in Difficult Run Stream Valley Park will remain closed until June 2011.
