YORK-An open house is scheduled for Thursday, September 16 to discuss a potential sidewalk expansion project along Grafton Drive (Route 621) near Grafton Middle School and Grafton High School.
York County is applying to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for federal grant funding to extend the existing sidewalk on the west side of Grafton Drive in front of the schools to the Rainbrook Villas housing development.
The project proposal would create an additional 2,000-foot of sidewalk and allow for a continuous walkway between Falling Spring Run and Timberline Loop, connecting Grafton Woods, Glen Laurel, The Townhomes at Martin Farm, Rainbrook Villas, and the Grafton school complex.
County officials will be on hand during the open house between 5:30pm and 7pm on September 16 at the York County’s Public Works Building, 105 Service Dr., to discuss the project, provide information, answer questions, and listen to citizen comments.
If approved, the sidewalk extension project would be funded through the Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside, a federal grant program that provides funding for transportation projects that expand non-motorized travel choices.
