More than 80 years after a trolley between Richmond and Ashland stopped running (1938), the Town of Ashland is ready to begin construction on the “Trolley Line Trail”. This will be the first phase of an off-road, alternate route for bicycles and pedestrians between Richmond and Ashland. The project consists of a boardwalk and asphalt trail. Construction is planned to begin in the Spring of 2019 and be completed by the late Summer / early Fall of 2019. This project will be part of the East Coast Greenway. To see the Ashland Trolley Line Trail project as it relates to the rest of the potential future project between Ashland and Richmond, check out the Trolley Line Trail Study Area.
