One feature of Long Bridge Park is a bike path that will eventually connect to the Mount Vernon Trail near the 14th Street Bridge, so any delay in that park may delay the trail.
Plans to expand Long Bridge Park in Arlington are on hold after bids for the pool and gym project came in significantly higher than officials expected.
Arlington County Manager Barbara Donnellan said Friday that she will delay construction plans for the aquatics facility, gym and additional parkland. She called the high bids "disappointing."
The county board was expected to approve construction contracts early this year. Instead, staff will provide options how to proceed to the board, Donnellan said in a statement.
