Construction begins on second phase of Washington Boulevard Trail


Phase 1 of Washington Boulevard Trail
Phase 1 of the Washington Boulevard Trail, built in 2010, links the Arlington Boulevard Trail to the Penrose neighborhood near the Sequoia Plaza office center.


Construction has started on the next phase of the Washington Boulevard Trail project. Phase 2 will construct a 10-foot-wide paved bicycle and pedestrian trail along the west side of Washington Boulevard (VA Route 27). The new trail section will link with the Phase 1 trail section built between Arlington Boulevard and Walter Reed Drive. 


Night and weekend work is expected periodically throughout the project and will take place between 10 pm and 5 am (these hours will occasionally be extended).


Partial lane closures will be in place at night, reducing traffic to one lane in the southbound direction. There will be no impacts to northbound traffic.
