Shop Local and Support Trails

Our local nurseries have been especially supportive of making Great Falls a more Pedestrian, Equestrian, and Bike friendly community. This holiday season, support our local nurseries by purchasing your greens at Pots and Plants on the Pike and Krops Crops.

If you purchase your Christmas Tree from Pots and Plants, you can choose to donate $5 or more to support the creation of a trail along the Pike. 100% of your donation goes directly to trail construction.

This will be a vital connection along the Pike into Great Falls Village. Perfect for taking a walk into town to see the Village Christmas Tree or celebrate the season with friends at a local restaurant.

Join us this season by shopping local and supporting community trails!

Have a Healthy Holiday Season!

Trail Crosswalk Improvements At Route 7 and Colvin Run

Fairfax County will start construction on Project No. ST-000003-018, Leesburg Pike/Colvin Run Road Pedestrian Access Improvement Project, on April 18, 2016 and is expected to complete construction by early 2017.

This project will add a signalized pedestrian crosswalk at the intersection of Leesburg Pike and Colvin Run Road, providing a safe crossing for pedestrians and improving access to the Cross County Trail system. Construction will involve intersection modification, lane widening, and the installation of 203 linear feet of new sidewalk, bus pads, and pedestrian accessibility improvements. Signal modification improvements will include new mast poles, pedestrian signals, signage, pavement marking, and other associated improvements.

These improvements involve construction of retaining walls, storm drainage structures, fencing, and other related improvements. There may be lane closures during off-peak hours, between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

If you have questions, please contact Qais Bashir, at 703-324-5085 or Qais.Bashir@fairfaxcounty.gov.
