Capital Trail informational meeting planned
The Virginia Department of Transportation will host a public information meeting Feb. 3 to discuss the portion of the Virginia Capital Trail that will extend along New Market Road (Route 5) in Varina.
The meeting will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at John Rolfe Middle School, 6901 Messer Road in Varina.
Attendees will be able to see and hear plans for the construction of a shared-use path along the road, from 0.7 miles south of Richmond city limits to Long Bridge Road in Varina. The path is a 10.8 mile phase of the Virginia Capital Trail. Construction is expected to begin in mid 2012 and continue through mid 2014 and will have minor impacts on traffic.
The meeting will be held in an open house format beginning at 5 p.m. with stations where individuals can talk one-on-one with project staff.
The Children's Clothing Closet at Highland Springs United Methodist Church will be open Saturday, Aug. 27 and Tuesday, Aug. 30 to provide free new or nearly new children's clothing for families in need, prior to the start of the school year.
