Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation plans to evaluate the condition of asphalt pavement on off-street trails during the month of February 2018. A specialty company will be used for this assessment and will use a modified van fitted with the pavement assessment instruments. The County’s main trail systems, including Custis Trail, Four Mile Run Trail and the Bluemont Junction Trail, will all be driven and assessed. The purpose of this assessment is to determine which sections of the trail system are most in need of resurfacing.
The trails need to only be driven one time and the total number of days for the pavement assessment work is anticipated to be 7-10 days. The month of February was selected for this pavement condition assessment due to the reduced volume of use on the trails. Work will begin after 9:00 a.m. and end by 3:00 p.m. and will not be conducted on the weekends. The pavement cannot be assessed if there is snow on the trails. The trails will not be closed for this work. Pedestrians have the right of way, but precautions should be taken if the vehicles are encountered. If the vehicles are encountered, please stop and move off the trail if possible to let the vehicle pass so it may evaluate conditions in the most efficient and accurate manner.
Thank you in advance for your patience while this process is underway.
