Work to fix cracked sidewalks and replace old benches in McLean is slated to happen by the end of the fiscal year 2020.
The improvements are apart of Fairfax County’s efforts for five community revitalization district (CRDs). The Department of Public Works and Environmental Service runs the CRD maintenance program.
A six-month-long study identified 28,000 features, including benches, bike racks and bus shelters within the CRDs that the county could maintain.
“The CRD program is responsible for slightly more than half of the features, with the other half maintained by utilities or the private sector,” according to the county.
PJ Tierno, one of the CRD program managers, told the Board of Supervisors last Tuesday (Oct. 8) that people will see old benches replaced and cracked sidewalks fixed in McLean within the upcoming fiscal year.
So far, the program has made 1,113 repairs in FY 2019 to trip hazards up to 2 inches deep in McLean through a company called Precision Safe Sidewalks, Tierno said.
Coming in FY 2020, 13,350 square feet of sidewalks in McLean are set to be repaired, Tierno said.
“That is the largest [square footage] of any of the CRDs,” Tierno said.
Old wooden benches in McLean will also be replaced, added.
“This is an awesome program,” Dranesville District Supervisor John Foust said at the meeting, saying that he likes that the county is maintaining VDOT’s sidewalks.
