VIRGINIA CENTRAL RAILWAY TRAIL
The Virginia Central Railway Trail was envisioned by the City of Fredericksburg, Virginia, as part of an initiative to provide the community with a connected network of trails for nonmotorized transportation. GORDON’s design team was engaged to bring the vision to life. The trail offers links to various residential communities and businesses within the City, creating opportunities for recreation that did not previously exist as well as increased access to local history throughout the project area. The City’s Pathways Steering Committee, a long standing bicycling and pedestrian facilities planning group, continues to serve to identify user needs, promote safety and foster the area’s nonmotorized transportation network.
