A new bridge to be built in Canterbury Woods Park

The old bridge connected the swim club with Canterbury Woods Park.

Construction is expected to start within the next few weeks on a new bridge over Long Branch Stream in Canterbury Woods Park in Annandale. The old bridge was washed out during Tropical Storm Lee in September  2011.

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors authorized $302,000 for the project, which includes a 60-foot steel-framed pedestrian bridge and approximately 75 feet of stream bank restoration. It is expected to be completed this winter.

The contractor, Accubid Construction Co., will be mobilizing at the end of the parking lot of the Canterbury Woods Swim Club on Southampton Drive. Portions of the existing Long Branch Stream Valley trail may be temporarily closed during the project.
