Fairfax County W&OD Trail users who connect to the Custis Trail on their commutes or recreational rides need to be aware that on Monday, May 6, the Custis Trail will close where it passes under I-66 near Bon Air Park in Arlington.
Trail users will be detoured to cross over I-66 using an existing pedestrian bridge about 750 feet east of the underpass. The bridge can also be accessed from N. Fairfax Drive near Kensington Street. The detour will be marked and uses existing paved trails.
Extensive work is planned for the bridge that runs above the trail as part of the I-66 Inside the Beltway widening project. As part of the construction, the Custis Trail will be shifted slightly south, improving visibility and safety for trail users. Work is expected to be complete by fall 2020.
