    Default Proposed new trail from Dunn Loring to Centreville

    FYI:

    As part of the I-66 highway expansion, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is building a new trail from Dunn Loring to Centreville. This is an amazing opportunity to create trail access to the W&OD, the Cross County trail, the Custis Trail and others, creating one of the longest trails in the region. Unfortunately, the designs we’ve seen don’t look good. In many sections, the trail is squeezed between the highway and the sound barrier, which limits access, exposes users to pollution, and makes for an extremely unpleasant trail experience.

    Like this, but without the grass. Doesn’t that look fun?

    VDOT needs to hear that this design is not good enough. A better design would move the trail to the opposite side of the sound wall, and make it at least 12 feet wide. That would make it more accessible, more safe, more pleasant, and more practical as a transportation connection.
