[ARCHIVED] Portion of Virginia Capital Trail Temporarily Closed

Virginia Capital Trail

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has closed a portion of the Virginia Capital Trail, between mile markers 1 and 2, for emergency bridge repairs. Repair work will begin in early August and is expected to take three to five weeks to complete. During the closure, trail users may detour along Greensprings Interpretive Trail (GST) as shown on this map. Bicycles will temporarily be permitted on the detour portion of GST but are not allowed on other sections of GST. Cyclists should be aware that some portions of the detour route are gravel rather than paved.

The Virginia Capital Trail is a 52-mile bicycle and pedestrian shared-use trail that connects Virginia’s past and present state capitals of Jamestown, Williamsburg and Richmond along Scenic Route 5.
