Henrico's First Bike Lane!

Last week, Henrico County stripedĀ its first official bike/walk lane!

The 1.5-mile beauty (pictured above) is located on Park Terrace Drive, in the Wellesley neighborhood of western Henrico.

This is big news, and in addition to new sidewalk construction, the County administration’s pledge to allocate $12.5 million to biking and walking projects over the next five years, the recently passed bond referendum that will add to the County’s growing park system (including trails), and the 14 miles of the Virginia Capital Trail in eastern Henrico, there’s lots to be excited about!

If you’re as happy to see this as we are, please take a moment to write a thank you note to Three Chopt Supervisor Tommy Branin and County Manager John Vithoulkas for their leadership in getting this done. Stay tuned for more!
