    Default Nov 2019 - Road and Trail Conditions

    Happy November!

    The storms yesterday and last night brought a tree down on the Custis between the trail heading up towards Veitch (i.e., the trail east of the bridge to nowhere, through McCoy park) and Lee Highway. It looked like maybe you could go under, but I went up and around.

    Really? I went under the tree and did a little bit of Cyclocross :-)

    Careful coming down the ramp off the Route 50 bridge by TJ Middle School in Arlington. Someone has dragged the landscaping timbers across the trail (from the driveway at the bottom). These are several bolted together. Too big for me to move.

    FMR Trail through Benjamin Banneker Park will close for construction the week of Nov. 18, 2019 and remain closed through 3rd Quarter 2020.

    View the detour for pedestrian and bicycle traffic.

    Learn more about the project.

    Hopefully the signs for this detour will be easy to follow for people coming off the existing detour for the construction of the bridge over 29.

    Is there a reason the trail can't be kept open through the construction. I understand the need for a detour while it's being resurfaced and widened or adjacent work is being done, but that doesn't take a year.

    I would write parks@arlingtonva.us to get that answer.

    Any idea to what "3rd Quarter 2020" is in reference? Calendar year? Fiscal year? And if fiscal year, when did (does) FY 2020 begin?

    Calendar year. There's a map floating around that specifies 9/1/2020
