Drilling Operations on James River Heritage Trail at Riverfront Park (Sept. 20-21)

September 19, 2022

On Tuesday and Wednesday, September 20-21, crews will be collecting geotechnical cores using a drilling rig at Riverfront Park.  One of the core samples will fall in the middle of the James River Heritage Trail which will require its closure for the duration of the work. 

Trail users can bypass the drilling on this section of trail by traveling along Jefferson Street for the length of the park. While Riverfront Park is not closing in its entirety for this work, the public is asked to remain at least 100 feet away from the drilling rig at all times.

For more information, please contact William "Clay" Simmons, P.E., Deputy Director, Public Works Department at (434) 455-4443.
