Pulled up from the comments on this post from last week.
Establishment of historical tidal wetland condition in Four Mile Run Park is effectively completed except for some of the repair work needed on the wetland trail. Also, the new native plantings need a chance to establish themselves. There's currently a dead-end terminus to the wetland trail but a small bridge is planned...but not yet funded...to connect this new trail at the eastern end to the bend in the Four Mile Run Park trail behind the softball field backstop.
The bridge between Commonwealth and Eads being designed to cross Four Mile Run isn't part of the workplan for 2016 and is not yet funded. Here's more about that design on the project website (WC: where you can also check out this wicked cool animation and where this update was recently added "The County of Arlington put the project out to bid in June, but only received one bid, which exceeded the engineer’s cost estimate. The County is revising the plans to address the cost issues and will be re-bidding the project in in the winter/spring of 2016.")
The 4MR Park Trail repaving was recently completed before the holidays. Picture of it below (near the Wetland restoration in Alexandria).
And then from Alexandria's Four Mile Run Restoration Project website
- The Four Mile Run Park path is now re-opened for pedestrians and cyclists. The wetlands trail will be remain closed until spring when there is dry and predictable weather to complete it. The pink flags will remain in the wetlands for one year in order to deter geese as plants establish.
