A Week of Westbriar Improvements

Originally published 10/24/18

Several readers in Westbriar have asked about the surveying activity along Creek Crossing Drive. This is being done in support of a joint Vienna and Fairfax County infrastructure effort to improve pedestrian convenience and safety.

The $400,000 program will fill in gaps in sidewalk coverage between Beulah and Old Courthouse Roads. In some places, road drainage is via deep rocky ditches. The surveying is needed to establish property boundaries, as well as the best alignment, taking into account, for example, preservation of valuable trees.

Walkers and bicyclers will like this: The trail through Wildwood Park no longer has those potholes and tree root buckles. It’s all good now from Niblick Drive to Follin Lane.

Vienna DPW crews are busy on our streets north of the golf course this week. They are replacing broken curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and driveway aprons. Some asphalt touch up will follow.
