    New trail segment is almost finished northwest of Tysons, to make it easier for those coming from the west to reach the area, and it's mostly flat. Here is a Street View link. The trail is in the center of the picture as of June. Below is how it looks now. It seems that it will open within a day or two. It has its own street lighting. It comes out at the intersection of Leesburg Pike and Spring Hill RD. Here is a 3D Google view link. The trail occupies the green area between buildings and cuts through the trees to reach residential streets in Vienna.

    I couldn't find a link to the project, but I suspect it's part of this project: http://connectroute7.org

    That appears to be the long awaited Vesper Trail.

    See

    https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/transp...s/vesper-trail

    The Tysons Metrorail Station Access Management Study (TMSAMS) identified necessary transportation improvements to enhance multimodal access to and from the Metrorail Stations in Tysons. Vesper Trail is one of the identified improvements, connecting pedestrians and cyclists from Vesper Street to Spring Hill Metro Station. The trail is an approximate .4 miles and runs primarily within Fairfax County Board of Supervisor property.
