Harrison Branch Improvements

A two-and-a-half month long restoration project will begin at Issac Crossman Park in October 2018. The park, located at 535 N. Van Buren St., will be closed to the public starting Monday, October 15 and reopen in early 2019. Neighborhood homeowners and residents have been notified of the project.

The Harrison Branch, a tributary that outfalls to Four Mile Run, is a stream that runs through Issac Crossman Park. The goals of the project include daylighting the stream, which will create a more natural, open flow for the tributary and help minimize both erosion and scour along the streambank and streambed. Overlapping stone and felled trees will also be added to portions of the stream to create a wetland area.

The project is managed out of the Department of Public Works by Capital Improvements Project (CIP) Engineer Lionel Millard, who can be reached via email at lmillard@fallschurchva.gov for any questions.
