City seeking funds for sidewalk, bike lanes on Forest Hill Avenue

Feb 12, 2024 | by

The city is seeking funds from the Central Virginia Transportation Authority to improve the walk/bike/drive experience on a stretch of Forest Hill Avenue:

The Forest Hill Avenue Phase II project will improve multimodal safety and operations along the one mile section of Forest Hill Avenue from Powhite Parkway to Dorchester Road. The project will provide a raised median for access management and dedicated turn lanes, buffered bike lanes in each direction, sidewalk along the corridor where there is none today, crossing improvements at three intersections and other streetscape amenities including lighting.

The project is is just one of more than 30 before the Central Virginia Transportation Authority.

There does not seem to be a timeline associated with the project, though a previous completion date of 2031 had been shared.
