York County Public Meeting on Proposed Grafton Drive Sidewalk Extension - Thursday, Sept. 16
September 8, 2021
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 (Route 621) in front of Grafton High School/Middle School to the Rainbrook Villas housing development. The proposed 2,000-foot sidewalk would result in 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.
An informational open house will take place between 5:30 and 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 16, at York County’s Public Works Building, 105 Service Drive (off Goodwin Neck Road). County staff will be present to provide information, answer questions, and receive citizen comments.
If approved, the project would be funded through the Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside, which is a federal grant program that provides funding for transportation projects that expand non-motorized travel choices. The project selection process is coordinated by VDOT in conjunction with the regional Metropolitan Planning Organizations. Federal funds cover 80% of the project cost, and a minimum local match of 20% is required.
