[ARCHIVED] VDOT Kicks Off Ashland to Petersburg Trail Study


Study will identify a preferred multi-use trail corridor in the Richmond metropolitan region

RICHMOND – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is asking for the public to help identify a preferred corridor for a multi-use trail through the metro Richmond region as part of the Ashland to Petersburg Trail study.

The multi-use trail would accommodate bicyclists, pedestrians and other active transportation users along a corridor through Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico counties, as well the cities of Colonial Heights, Petersburg and Richmond, and the Town of Ashland. The type of trail could vary depending on location.

 A virtual presentation and survey is available online at
