Virginia Central Railway Trail
VCR Trail 1Work began in early summer 2013 on construction of the Virginia Central Railway (VCR) Trail. This ten foot wide and approximately 2.7 mile long asphalt trail will run from the eastern end of the Cobblestone development off Lafayette Boulevard out Lafayette Boulevard and across the Blue and Gray Parkway, then through Alum Spring Park and across Jefferson Davis Highway (Route 1) to a point near the Idlewild neighborhood, just east of I-95.

The total construction cost for this project is $3.1 million. The opening of the trail from Cobblestone to Jefferson Davis Highway (Phase 1 and 2) was celebrated on September 20, 2014. 

The remainder of the trail from Jefferson Davis Highway to Idlewild is to be completed by late 2014. The opening is planned for spring 2015.
