Appomattox River Trail / Virginia Capital Trail Connection

With assistance from VDOT and Michael Baker International, the Crater PDC recently drafted a study on providing active transportation users a safe and efficient connection between the Appomattox River Trail (ART) and the Virginia Capital Trail (VCT). When complete, the ART will extend over 20 miles from Lake Chesdin to City Point in Hopewell. On the opposite side of the James River, the VCT runs 52 miles from Richmond to historic Jamestown. Although separated by only a few miles, there is no safe or efficient way for active transportation users to cross the James River and access both trails.
