Ken Lawrence Stream Valley Trail

Tysons, VA

As part of the 2.5 million square foot redevelopment project known as Arbor Row, located within the heart of the new Tyson Urban Center, Bowman provided full-service engineering, environmental, surveying and construction administration for the restoration of 800 lf of degraded stream valley, installation of 1,000 lf of new trails, and a 30 foot long pedestrian bridge crossing, as well as the first two synthetic turf fields in Tysons Virginia. Bowman’s services included the development of zoning entitlement plans, schematic through construction plan design, bid assistance, and construction administration support. Specifically, our services included: field layout and site design, storm-water management design, two rectangular fields (soccer) design, parking lot, streetscape, utility design, stream valley trail connectivity and pathway design, supervision of sports field lighting design,  full topographic and construction stakeout survey, easement plat preparation, and construction oversight.    The project had significant topographic challenges as there was a grade change of approximately forty feet in elevation from one side to another.

This project was fast-tracked for implementation by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) due to the immense demand for youth soccer paying facilities within the Tyson and McLean area. As such the entire project was designed, permitted and constructed within twenty-one months, and was delivered to the FCPA two months ahead of schedule. Extensive design and administrative coordination was provided by Bowman to the FCPA and various county stakeholders to ensure the design and implementation of the project development was seamless.
