Amherst portion of James River Heritage Trail reopens


The Percival's Island bridge. 

The Amherst County portion of the James River Heritage Trail has reopened after undergoing renovations, the county announced.

Decking boards on the trail bridge that connects Amherst County to the eastern end of Percival’s Island were repaired by a local contractor, while the public works department replaced the handrails. The trail has reopened three weeks ahead of schedule.

Public Works will continue to make improvements over the next few weeks. Plans include new mile markers, trash and recycling receptacles, and a gazebo.

The trail will remain open during the next phase of improvements.
