ES Rail Trail Is An Active Construction Site

Construction of the Eastern Shore Rail Trail is Underway

We know how exciting it is to see pictures of progress along the Eastern Shore Rail Trail, but, as a reminder, the trail is not yet open to the public.

In fact, it's an active construction zone right now and will remain so for the next few months. 

The construction activities along the entire corridor include continued salvage work, repaving of public road crossings, and installation of a sewer line from Nassawadox to Onley.

While we know it's tempting to start using something that has been in the works for so long, we want to ensure the safety of both workers and the public as well as keep these projects free from delays or obstruction.

You all will be the FIRST to know when we get the official go-ahead for the public to use the trail. Thank you for your understanding.

For the safety of all, the rail corridor is not yet open to the public.  Instead, pay a visit to the Southern Tip Hike & Bike Trail.
