After years of discussion and planning, workers Monday morning installed permanent restrooms at Eva Walker Park in Warrenton.
Alexandria Pike closed for about two hours as a crane lifted the 47,800-pound, pre-cast concrete structure off a flatbed tractor-trailer and onto a bed of gravel.
Built by Smith-Midland Corp., the structure has pre-installed toilets and sinks.

Smith-Midland Corp. (SMC) recently manufactured, delivered and erected an EASI-SET precast concrete modular restroom/concession building for Loudoun County at the Byrnes Ridge Park in Aldie, VA. Loudoun County was searching for a durable, maintenance-free yet cost-effective solution to issues that are often associated with park sites; vandalism and maintenance challenges.
The first of several restrooms ordered was a 24 ft by 30 ft six-toilet restroom with concession area. The building was cast by SMC with split-faced block exterior wall and cedar shake roof finishes. The building was erected at SMCs yards in three 24 ft by 10 ft modular sections. The modular sections were then outfitted with components including lights, breaker panel, water heater, hand dryers, grab bars, toilets, partitions, sinks, baby-changing stations, mirrors doors and a roll-up concession window. Stain and anti-graffiti control were added at the factory along with an anti-slip epoxy floor paint.

The two are located across from each other on the busy Route 29 divided highway and are joined by 1,500 ft of 12-in. force main. Each pump station includes emergency standby generators, instrumentation and SCADA systems.
