Varina Phase

Greenspring | Chickahominy Riverfront | Sherwood Forest | Charles City Courthouse
New Market Heights | Varina | Park | Richmond Riverfront

The Varina phase of the Virginia Capital Trail will be approximately 7.6 miles and extend from Longbridge Road in Henrico County to 1/2 mile south of the Richmond city limits. The trail is split at the Park Phase, which extends north through the Four Mile Creek and Dorey parks in Henrico County.

Cost: The cost for this phase of the Trail is approximately $13.8 million.

Status: Final engineering/design work is underway. The alignment includes five locations where a redesign was necessary to minimize impact to the tree canopy. This alignment will primarily follow the overhead utility easements. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2014 and be completed by September 2015.
