Construction is starting on improvements to the Little Falls Stream Valley Park and the Little Falls hiker-biker paved trail. The work is scheduled for late summer 2020 (ie, now) through Spring of 2021 and will close portions of the trail.
Two pedestrian bridges that connect the trail to the Capital Crescent Trail near Westmoreland hills and near the Dalecarlia tunnel will be replaced. (For those of you who have memorized every bridge in the area and the designations the Montgomery County Department of Parks has given them, they are bridges P17-01 and P17-02, there will be a quiz later.) In addition to replacing the bridges, the trail in the area will be repaved, there will be drainage improvements and stream channel stabilization.

More information is available on the county website.
And now for the promised quiz, there is just one question:
Who gives bridges names like P17-01 and P17-02?
