Way Back Wednesday-Witter Recreational Fields

On 2 Mar, 2016 By With 0 Comments

Its a Way Back Wednesday! Avon will be taking a look back into our project history and featuring a more detailed look into one of our completed projects.

This Wednesday we are featuring Witter Recreational Fields. This project was completed for the City of Alexandria in April of 2013. The project was the development of a 13 acre site  into usable recreation space comprised of, two lighted synthetic turf rectangular multi purpose fields, a lighted softball diamond, restrooms, park pavilions and parking for 145 vehicles.  In addition, the project includes a one-half mile pedestrian loop trail, park pavilions, the preservation of an existing cemetery and intersection improvements at Duke Street and Witter Drive.    The site became property of the City of Alexandria as a result of the construction associated with the Woodrow Wilson bridge construction project and  the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Settlement Agreement Record of Decision between the City of Alexandria and the Federal Highway Administration.

When Avon Corporation began the project the site was undeveloped and used for dumping by the City and  from the construction efforts involved with the WWBridge project.
