VDOT has informed us that the Southgate interchange project is planning to switch vehicular and trail traffic to the new permanent alignments. In order to do so, the section of trail passing through the woods (two images of this are shown below) needs to be cleared of brush, leaves and limbs that have fallen since the trail was detoured for construction. The scope is about 600 feet of trail that needs to be cleaned up. The section will reopen once the cleanup has been completed.
