Henrico launches more road, trail, sidewalk projects with funds from CVTA
With Thornton as chairman, transportation authority marks successful first year
For years, Henrico County’s transportation needs have exceeded its available funding. As a result, major projects – like building the Fall Line Trail, Lambert Way or the Magellan Parkway extension over Interstate 95 – have often had to wait years to proceed.
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).
