Is It Feasible to Build - High

Ashgrove Lane is already built but is threatened with removal under the Park Authority general management plan for Ash Grove Historic Site.

James and Marie Teets have a legal agreement for the roadway to be kept open for their use as long as they occupy their property at 1630 Teets Lane. Once they vacate their property the Park Authority plans to remove the road and bridge. We recommend that the general management plan be changed to preserve the road and bridge for access to Tysons Corner under Park Authority maintenance. However, there is no objection to eliminating vehicular access to the roadway.
