[ARCHIVED] Bankside Trail and VCR Connector Information Meeting

Bankside Trail Connector newsflash

The City has had long standing plans for a Bankside Bicycle and Pedestrian Trail.  The Bankside Trail is a proposed off-street 3,200 linear foot shared use trail and will be a key part of the City’s future bicycle and pedestrian network.  It will connect the Virginia Central Railroad Trail (via the “V.C.R. Connector”), the Chatham Bridge Trail as well as key points along the route. As such, it will also be a part of the East Coast Greenway, which is a national bike way stretching from Calais, Maine to Key West, Florida.  Below is an updated concept map that identifies the Bankside Trail and V.C.R. Connector.

The City has taken several steps over the years to advance the construction of this trail.  This work included obtaining easements along the Riverfront in certain areas and developing high level concept plans. The concept work will be used to understand how the different features along the Riverfront will affect the ultimate character and design of the trail.  

The next steps in the trail planning process will be discussed at the Community Planning Department's Bankside Trail and VCR Connector Information Meeting, held on the 1st floor of Executive Plaza (601 Caroline Street) on Monday June 27 at 6 PM. For additional information, please contact the Fredericksburg Community Planning and Building Department at planning@fredericksburgva.gov and (540) 372-1179.
