View East Falls Church trail bridge replacement in a larger map
As reported in my post a few months ago, the new bridge is larger and modernized compared to the old one. Here are some photos of the new bridge:
|New bridge goes off to the right. Cyclist is traveling east on the W&OD trail just east of the underpass at Sycamore Street.|
|View of bridge approaching from the field across from the EFC Metro station. W&OD trail is on the opposite side of the bridge.
|Bridge view looking east across the bridge. W&OD is on the opposite side, running perpendicular to the bridge. The basketball court is beyond the trail.|
- Wider and meets ADA requirements.
- With removal of some pavement, it's much more obvious where the trail is; people are less likely to get confused. Once signage is added, the logistics of this area will be essentially solved.
- Concrete deck. The old bridge's deck was wood, which would be slippery when wet or icy
