Hats off (or helmets) to Alexandria for this - the gaps in the asphalt along here are bad, but not any worse than one finds on many of the area trails and happily they are going to do something to correct it.

About a decade ago, the NPS ground down many of the bumps on the Mt Vernon Trail and then filled in any gaps with some asphalt glop. The result was, for a while, an improved trail. Unfortunately the glop gives way, water gets in, there is freezing that pushes asphalt back up in places, and so on. There seems to be an assumption that an asphalt trail is maintenance free. Much less is required than an asphalt roadway, but occasionally some work helps.
