The project includes two main elements: a “low profile” crossing over Holmes Run and stream bank stabilization and restoration to reduce erosion and flooding.
The $1 million project is managed and paid for by the city of Alexandria but the city collaborated with Fairfax County on the design, said Carrie Sanders, manager of Alexandria’s bicycle and pedestrian program.
It’s part of a master plan to provide a continuous off-street trail along Holmes Run from Columbia Pike near the Lake Barcroft dam all the way to Eisenhower Avenue at Cameron Run.
