Status Update

A linear park and greenway is one of several transformative projects called for in the Rio Road Small Area Plan. [1]

This project supports the plan's vision of Conservation.

Description from plan

"A small linear parcel between the Colonial Auto Center property and Storage Solutions Center serves as an additional County-owned stormwater management facility for the area. This facility should be enlarged to function as a linear park that runs along the stream and lengthened to provide connectivity between Route 29 and Berkmar Drive. Accommodations for the linear park should be made as adjacent properties develop or redevelop.

East of Route 29, the same stream is currently piped under parking lots. The stream is expected to be daylighted as properties in this area redevelop. A shared-use path should be provided along the daylighted stream and connect to the linear park via an underpass below Route 29 (see Route 29 Pedestrian Underpass). These facilities will provide additional off-street trail connections in the area.
