Stream restoration work scheduled to begin this month at Mason District Park will force closure of some trails in the park.

The project involves the restoration of approximately 1,575 linear feet of Turkeycock Run using natural channel design techniques. The primary goal of this restoration is to stabilize the channel and prevent future erosion and degradation along the stream. This project will impact a large portion of the park’s trail network and include replacement of an existing pedestrian bridge. Temporary closures will be implemented to ensure the safety of the public and the project team. Active construction is anticipated to be complete by early June 2018.

Fairfax County’s Stormwater Planning Division and Utility Design and Construction Division have contracted with Environmental Quality Resources, LLC for the work, which will start sometime in October.

Mason District Park is located at 6621 Columbia Pike, Annandale, VA.
