About the Project
The TJ Upper Conversion Project will begin construction in October 2021 and should be completed the second quarter of 2022.
What’s happening? Based on the recommendation in the Public Spaces Master Plan and approved by the County Board in the Adopted FY 2019-2028 Capital Improvement Plan, the goal of this project is to convert the existing natural grass field to synthetic turf; add spectator seating, signage, site furnishings, athletic equipment, pathways, landscaping; remove invasive plants, and make ADA and stormwater management improvements.
If the Arlington County Fair remains at Thomas Jefferson Park, the County is looking into a cover to protect the synthetic turf field so that this project doesn’t negatively impact the fair. Learn more here.
