Stream restoration project in Pinecrest Golf Course to start this month

Pinecrest Golf Course.

The Fairfax County Park Authority expects to begin work in mid-February on renovating a portion of Turkeycock Run within the Pinecrest Golf Course, at 6600 Little River Turnpike in the Alexandria portion of Mason District.

The project is being done to stabilize Turkeycock Run to reduce erosion and sedimentation within the watershed. 

The golf course will remain open during construction. “Impacts to the community should be minimal and will include occasional construction traffic entering and exiting the site from Elmdale Road,” the Park Authority states.

The contractor, EQR LLC, of Millersville, Md., will restore 250 linear feet of Turkeycock Run, carry out some minor grading to repair the stream centerline, install two rock vanes and scour pools, install a two-foot high rock wall on the northern side of the stream, and put in plants on the southern side of the stream bank. The project is expected to be completed by April.

The estimated budget for the project is $200,000. Funding comes from a grant from the Department of Environmental Quality and a park construction bond.
