Henrico launches more road, trail, sidewalk projects with funds from CVTA

With Thornton as chairman, transportation authority marks successful first year

The same dynamic has snared smaller initiatives – such as building sidewalks along Raintree and Causeway drives, a trail along Messer Road or upgrading the intersection of Darbytown and Turner roads.

But Henrico is now able to advance each of those projects – and more – thanks to a new funding stream provided through the Central Virginia Transportation Authority (CVTA).
