  • A potential raingarden (bio-retention) feature at N. Evergreen St & 11th St N. (1106 N. Evergreen) may be considered.
  • A drainage analysis will be performed during the final design and storm sewer structures and mains may be added accordingly.
  • Driveway aprons within the project limits (at locations where extensions are being constructed) will be replaced.
  • Full depth roadway replacement may occur as needed throughout the project limits, as determined through the detailed design.
  • Milling and paving of the roadway will be completed where needed in all other areas within the project limits.

    About the Project
  • This is a Waycroft-Woodlawn Civic Association Neighborhood Conservation project that was funded in February 2014.
  • Neighborhood kids helped design the new playgrounds for tots and school age kids at Woodlawn Park and the community was involved in planning to create an environmentally sustainable park.
  • Old play areas were moved away from the creek and the area along the creek was reforested with a variety of native trees, shrubs and perennials. Invasive plants were removed and new site furnishings installed, making it quite a “Woodlawn.”
  • The invasive plant removal is a five-year plan that began in May 2014. A U.S. Department of Forestry grant funded a portion of the reforestation.
  • The final park design was developed based on County-wide feedback through Open Arlington with final approval the civic association.
  • The contract for construction was awarded and approved by the County Board in June 2016, and was completed in March 2017.
