New Type of Trail Opens in Northern Virginia

The first ever Dual Trails project is complete on the W&OD Trail, and it's right here in The Little City! Thanks to Adam Tuss of NBC Washington for highlighting the story. Bicyclists and walkers/joggers/strollers can safely navigate the popular trail thx to divided lanes. This demonstrates the City's commitment to health and wellness, including ranking in the top three each year as U.S. News and World Report's Healthiest Communities in America!

The project would not have been possible without the partnerships and management from NOVA Parks and the The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority.

A new one-and-a-half-mile section of the wildly popular W&OD trail in Northern Virginia separates walkers from cyclists. News4 Transportation Reporter Adam Tuss offers a look.
