Construction recently started on a new trail in Tysons East that will connect Westgate Elementary School to the McLean Metro Station.
Scott’s Run Trail will provide a half-mile, 8-foot wide trail spanning Magarity Road to Colshire Meadow Drive near the McLean Metro station.
Robin Geiger, a spokesperson for the Fairfax County Department of Transportation, told Tysons Reporter that construction on the trail started July 8.
“Work is just starting now with the placement of erosion control items prior to grading activities,” Geiger said.
Located within Scott’s Run Stream Valley Park and Westgate Park, the trail will be lighted and include two bridges — a 90-foot bridge over Scotts Run Stream and a 50-foot bridge over a tributary.
The $3.3 million project is being funded by the Federal Regional Surface Transportation Program and Fairfax County.
Geiger said that construction plans to wrap up in next September.
