Herndon to build new pedestrian bridge to Sugarland Run trails in the fall

Construction to replace the Hunters Creek Pedestrian Bridge is slated to begin in October, according to the Town of Herndon.

An assessment by the town found that the bridge — which connects to the Sugarland Run trails from behind the Hunters Creek Swim & Racquet Club (417 Queens Row Street) — needs to be replaced and that erosion of the stream needs to be addressed.

Final designs for the replacement bridge and stream restoration are expected this month. It will include a new fiberglass structure set on a new foundation.

But the town announced on Friday (March 15) that the project will take longer to get going than anticipated.

“Schedules have been extended because of the sensitivities of working in a wetland area and in a floodplain,” the project page says. “Working in the wetland area will require an Army Corp of Engineers permit, which typically takes up to 9 months. The Town will work with the Army Corp of Engineers in an effort to expedite the permit process.”

Construction is expected to wrap up by the spring of 2025.

The bridge will remain closed until the work is complete. Residents will need to use the Cavendish Street entrance or Runnymede Park entrance to access trails.
