The W&OD Trail is seeing dramatically expanded use – and overcrowding - as people flock for some fresh air and escape from isolation. Don’t worry, we’re on it – We recently broke ground with City of Falls Church Government and NOVA Parks on NVTA-funded W&OD Trail enhancements to address congestion on the trail. Also, we recently awarded regional revenues towards the Arlington W&OD Trail Enhancements project through the FY2020-2025 Six Year Program adopted in July.
