New Bridges on the Broad Run Trail

In conjunction with Public Lands Day, a bridge dedication was held on Saturday, September 29 on the Broad Run Trail.  Over the summer, the PWC Parks & Recreation Dept managed the installation of two 50-foot fiberglass bridges at stream crossings on the trail (the location is shown here).   One new bridge links the trails in the Victory Lakes communities to the trail segment that  proceeds upstream on the property of the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia.  The other bridge links the Victory Lakes communities to the trail segment that leads downstream towards Rt 28.  Both are part of a larger network of trails in the Broad Run Trail Corridor. In his remarks to the group assembled for the dedication, Supervisor Covington noted that these trails in Bristow receive as much or more use than any similar facility in the County.

PWTSC volunteers also completed a project on Saturday morning, improving a trail section that was narrow and rough, where bicyclists had to dismount.  The results can be seen in this picture.
