    Default June 2022 Road and Trail Conditions

    Please note: the Four Mile Run Trail is scheduled to have two sections closed with major detours starting the first week on June and lasting many months.

    West Glebe Bridge underpass.

    From the County: The segment of the Four Mile Run trail at the intersection of South Glebe Road and West Glebe Road will close in two phases starting the week of June 6 as part of the West Glebe Road Bridge reconstruction project.

    Phase 1: Daily closures of the trail segment will take place the week of Monday, June 6, from 7:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. The trail will reopen for the weekend.
    Phase 2: The trail segment will close starting on the week of June 13, 2022 and will remain closed until Spring 2023.
    Detour: During trail segment closures, trail users should stay on the upper trail next to South Glebe Road and on South Four Mile Run for about 0.25 miles to reconnect with the trail. Signs will be posted to direct traffic.

    Dominion Power Glebe Transmission Lines project.

    From the Dominion Power May 31 email: On May 11, 2022, we held a virtual community meeting and provided information on construction scheduled to begin this summer. A recording is available on our project website.
    We also shared plans to keep the Four Mile Run Trail in operation by building a temporary boardwalk which allows trail users to quickly bypass construction outside the substation and let our crews work safely and efficiently. It will take approximately four months to construct the boardwalk. Until work is complete, a temporary detour, known as the Glebe Road detour will be needed. We are pleased to announce Arlington County and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) have approved our detour plan. The plan is attached for your reference.
    We expect to close the trail around the substation the week of June 6, 2022. The Glebe Road detour will be in place and re-route trail users along Route 1, Glebe Road, and South Eads Street. Adjustments will be made to the sidewalk on Route 1 and the traffic pattern on Glebe Road to accommodate the new traffic.

    The Rock Creek trail will be closed between Virginia Avenue and Monument Circle (Lincoln Memorial) from June 1 to 15 as they open the tunnel under the Roosevelt Bridge and reconfigure the "Belvedere".

    “UPDATE: From June 1-15, construction on upgrades to the bike & pedestrian path between the Kennedy Center & the National Mall will force a closure of the trail along the Potomac. Detours will be clearly marked at Virginia Avenue & Parkway Drive.”

    Much-needed repairs to the Theodore Roosevelt bridge, including the wider sidewalk deck we have been lobbying for, are moving forward: https://www.arlnow.com/2022/06/01/ro...qLqt2dBYuCHnc8

    It's an old Plymouth. Perhaps there is one abandoned on the trail.

    The "Belvedere" was intended to be the monumental termination of Constitution Ave. The TR Bridge and its gawdawful tangle of ramps turned it into a vestigial oddity.
