The Ashland to Petersburg Trail Study has identified a preferred corridor for a multi-use trail within the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico, cities of Colonial Heights, Petersburg and Richmond, and the Town of Ashland.

The Ashland to Petersburg Trail Study will include the identification of opportunities, constraints, and project costs to arrive at a preferred multi-use trail corridor that connects people and places across the Richmond metropolitan region.

When complete, the Ashland to Petersburg Trail Study will also recommend identified segments along the preferred corridor, which is intended to inform development of future active transportation projects, such as walking or jogging, biking and human powered transportation, in the study area.
