Arlington Enhances Scenic Four Mile Run Trail with New Extension

On Saturday, May 30, at 10:00 a.m., Congressman Jim Moran, Arlington County and the City of Alexandria will celebrate the completion and opening of the multi-use trail linking the popular Washington & Old Dominion Trail and Four Mile Run Trail located at South 27th Road and South Four Mile Run Drive.

The new trail eliminated nearly a mile of on-street riding and difficult road crossings and offers pedestrians and bicyclists a safer, more direct path along the Four Mile Run stream. The project brings new landscaping to the stream bank and a sanitary sewer main that increases capacity and helps prevent back-ups.
