Construction Underway on New Fiberglass Bridge at Lewinsville Park

Work has kicked off to replace a bridge connecting a McLean neighborhood to Lewinsville Park.

The former wooden bridge connected the Lewinsville Heights neighborhood to the park’s community garden.

Fairfax County Park Authority contractor Accubid Construction Services is replacing the old bridge with a new fiberglass one that will be longer by 30 feet and wider by 8 feet.

Dranesville District Supervisor John Foust told Tysons Reporter that the new bridge will be a “dramatic improvement in terms of accessibility.”

Construction began last week and is expected to finish up within two weeks, according to Fairfax County.

Until the new bridge is finished, a sign at the construction site encourages park visitors to find an alternative route like Nathanial Lane and Chain Bridge Road.

“Please respect the closure,” the sign says. “The bridge may be up and look ready for use, but the concrete will need time to set.”
