Construction of a new pedestrian bridge at Green Spring Gardens is well under way. The old bridge was damaged during Tropical Storm Lee in 2011. The $300,000 project includes a longer steel-frame bridge and stream bank restoration.

In related Green Spring Gardens news, written comments on proposed revisions to the park’s master plan are due Jan. 11. Comments can be sent via email to parkmail@fairfaxcounty.gov.

The draft master plan has a series of recommendations aimed at raising revenue, protecting historical assets, and improving parking, pedestrian access, drainage, and accessibility for the disabled.

After the comment period has closed, Park Authority staff will review public feedback, revise the master plan as necessary, and submit it to the Fairfax County Park Authority Board for review and a final vote.
