Construction begins on Isle of Wight County's Nike Park Trail
Construction is set to begin in mid-November on a 3-mile walking and bike path along Battery Park Road and Nike Park Road in Isle of Wight County.
The county accepted a $6 million bid from Excel Paving Corp. for Segment 1 and Segment 2 of the trail. The path will run from Battery Park Road and South Church Street to Nike Park. County officials, Virginia Department of Transportation representatives, members of the Board of Supervisors and county residents attended a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday at Nike Park to kick off the construction.
