On March 22, Fairfax County DOT held a public hearing to discuss the next two phases of the Georgetown Pike Trail. This meeting was covered previously by GFCA in our newletter and website (see https://gfca.org/Featured-News/4703056).
The meeting was held and 20+ people attended. Following the presentation and questions, comments about the plans were generally quite positive. The Connection Newspaper published a good summary of the meeting their March 29 – April 4 edition, which is available on their website http://www.greatfallsconnection.com (find the publication by date or search ‘georgetown pike trail’).
The two trail phases reviewed at the hearing will complete a walking and biking trail from Seneca Corners to Utterback Store Road. The next phase (called Phase 5) would connect Utterback Store Road to Great Falls Village.
