Status Update

A shared-use path on Rio Road is one of several transformative projects called for in the Rio Road Small Area Plan. [1]

This project supports the plan's visions of Connectivity.

See also Berkmar Shared-Use Path (SUP).

Description from plan

"Rio29 is currently a missing link of the Northtown Trail, a commuter route under development that is planned to connect the northern neighborhoods within Places29 to the City of Charlottesville.

Existing segments of the trail are beginning to converge around the Rio29 area, from the north along Berkmar Drive and from the east along Rio Road. The proposed trail runs along the east side of Berkmar Drive to Rio Road. From Berkmar Drive, the trail will continue east along Rio Rd. to the eastern boundary of the Plan area and connect to existing portions of the trail.

The trail is expected to be constructed with a minimum 10-foot asphalt path that is buffered and separated from the roadway. The shared-use path should transition to a buffered bike lane along Rio Road within the designated Core areas."
