Overview

Capital Trail Crossing Proposed Condition
No votes yet

This ongoing effort from Capital Trees involves the creation of a linear park along Dock St. from 17th St. to Pear St. Plans call for the removal of invasive species, planting drifts of low growing native grasses, perennials and ornamental plantings, improved lighting and tree canopy along the Virginia Capital Trail, site furnishings, canal overlooks and boardwalk, gathering areas and a dynamic green space to be located under the I-95 overpass at the Virginia Capital Trail’s western terminus. Educational signage and interpretive public art is to be displayed throughout the site, detailing its significance in the slave trade, the industrial development of Richmond, area trade and transportation, as well as its environmental attributes and functionality. The project will take place in phases, with most of the planting expected to be completed before the 2015 UCI Road World Championships bicycle races.
