Greenway Phase 3 - Loth Springs/Ridgeview Park Connector
In 2001, the City adopted a city-wide greenway plan. Since that time, 1.2 miles of the South River Greenway has been constructed and is utilized daily by pedestrians, cyclists, and those looking for river access (anglers and paddlers). Following the success and popularity of the current greenway trail, the City is pleased to announce it has been awarded $1,000,000 of funding from VDOT to design and construct the next major section of greenway, the Loth Springs/Ridgeview Park Connector Trail. This new section will allow for the safe and scenic connection of two of the City's most popular park facilities, the Greenway and Ridgeview Park.
On June 19, 2019 a Public Input Meeting was held at the Waynesboro Public Library. At this meeting the public was presented with 5 potential routes to make the connection fro Loth Springs to Ridgeview Park (map). The public was invited to submit comment sheets for Council to consider in the selection of a route. The results of the comments showed the Red Route (14th Street) as the favored route. The decision was made to pursue the project along that route.
The City is working with the engineering firm of McCormick Taylor to develop the design of this phase of the greenway.
