Transforming A Neglected Waterway In The D.C. Region
"Officials in Alexandria and Arlington last week adopted a plan that they hope will transform Four Mile Run from a sterile flood-control passage into a natural streambed with trails and parkland."
"Planners envision turning Four Mile Run into a natural-looking stream again, with native plants and entry points to float a kayak or canoe. They hope to remove railroad bridges in Potomac Yard to make room for parks, while adding more than 60,000 trees, pedestrian and bike bridges, trails and sports fields."
