VIRGINIA CAPITAL TRAIL RESURFACING IMPROVEMENT PROJECT NOW COMPLETE
Project to improve pavement conditions completed on budget and ahead of schedule

JAMES CITY COUNTY — On Tuesday, September 5, contract crews for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) completed a project to restore and improve the pavement conditions on the pedestrian and bicycle shared-use path of the Virginia Capital Trail in James City County. The Trail has reopened, allowing pedestrians and cyclists a safer, smooth surface to travel for years to come.

Blakemore Construction Corporation was awarded the $373,000 construction contract to resurface approximately 3.5 miles of multi-use path, starting on the east side of the entrance road to the Chickahominy Riverfront Park and ending at the wooden bridge parallel to John Tyler Highway (Route 5) near Governor’s Landing Road.

The project began on July 24, and was completed on budget and in advance of the scheduled completion date of September 8.

The Virginia Capital Trail is a 54-mile bicycle and pedestrian trail that connects Virginia’s past and present state capitals of Jamestown, Williamsburg and Richmond along Scenic Route 5.
