Random Hills Park Trail Improvement Project

ANNOUNCEMENT

Random Hills ParkThe Park Authority is planning to improve approximately 1,000 linear feet of asphalt trail in Random Hills Park as part of the I-66 Trail/Transform I-66 project. The project will connect the Virginia Department of Transportation’s (VDOT) proposed trail along I-66 with the existing trail network within Random Hills Park to Random Hills Road. Construction access will be from Random Hills Road and Route 50. The project will be designed and constructed to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards so it may serve both pedestrians and cyclists of all abilities.

The trail will be constructed entirely on Park Authority property and will extend through the park on the eastern side of Difficult Run. To limit the impact to natural resources, the trail will follow the path of the existing trail as much as possible. All relevant county, state and federal permits will be obtained for any potential impacts. In addition, the Park Authority will perform an archeological investigation of the area to assure that no cultural resources are impacted.
