Media Release from Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) on March 17, 2017
Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will host a community meeting on the Georgetown Pike Trail project, Wednesday, March 22, 2017, at 7:00–9:00 PM, in the Large Meeting Room at Great Falls Library, 9830 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls. County staff will present information on the project at 7:30 PM, followed by a brief question and answer session.
FCDOT is working with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to construct a 4.2 mile pedestrian trail along the north side of Georgetown Pike, from River Bend Road to Seneca Road. As Phases I and II have been completed, the project and this community meeting will focus on:
- Phase III, a 250’ section between Falls Chase Court and Falls Bridge Lane
- Phase IV, a 1200’ long section between Falls Bridge Lane and Seneca Road
Owners of potentially affected properties and other interested parties are invited to review and discuss the project with County staff. In addition to the design features that will be discussed, Fairfax County is also soliciting public comment as to what effect, if any, the proposed trail might have on the historic integrity of Georgetown Pike itself. Georgetown Pike is listed on National Register of Historic Places.
