Repaving work on the Cross County Trail near Lake Accotink is scheduled to start Sept. 21, the Fairfax County Park Authority announced Sept. 9.
The project includes repaving the trail from Braddock Road to a point approximately 5,200 feet south, repaving an existing trail connection to the Danbury Forest community, and replacing an existing wooden bridge approximately 150 feet south of Braddock Road. The $378,000 project is funded by a voter-approved park bond.
The contractor, Accubid Construction Services Inc., will be working on site for up to 180 days, depending upon the weather. Construction access to the site is from the Ellet Road entrance to the park.
The first phase of the construction will be concentrated at the northern end of the project, and park patrons should be alert for construction traffic between that area and Ellet Road. The trail might be closed in the vicinity of the active construction for certain periods, especially during working hours on weekdays.
