DRAFT Extending the Elizabeth River Trail- Cost Model and Cost Estimates
The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, has completed the DRAFT Extending the Elizabeth River Trail- Cost Model and Cost Estimates.
In response to a request from the City of Norfolk, HRTPO staff estimated the costs of the two routes identified by Work Program Architects (for the Elizabeth River Trail Foundation) to redirect and extend the Elizabeth River Trail from Dominion Tower to the western terminus of the Virginia Beach Trail. This report documents the preparation of a trail cost model, the application of that model to the subject routes, and route issues noticed in the process.
The model can be used by engineers/planners to cost other trails, and the estimates and issues can be used by the City of Norfolk to guide the extension of the Elizabeth River Trail. Click Here to view a copy of the draft document.
All interested parties are encouraged to review the draft report and send comments to Mr. Rob Case at email@example.com or by mail to 723 Woodlake Drive, Chesapeake, Virginia, 23320. The deadline for comments on this draft report is May 17, 2023.
