Dear Virginia Paddlers,

You have the opportunity to make a difference. Here’s the deal:

The existing South Quay Bridge, Route 189, which spans the Blackwater River, just south of Franklin, VA, will be replaced. This bridge is now a moveable swing-span bridge. The proposal is to replace it with a fixed-span structure. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has already held a public meeting on this project and is now asking for additional comments.

My questions to you are:
• Do you paddle on the Blackwater?
• Would it make sense, from a paddler’s perspective, to have a river access point at the bridge? The access we’re talking about would include an off road parking area and a simple trail to the river.

Here’s a link to the project description:

Here’s a link to the Google Map of the bridge:

Please email comments to Wali.Zaman@VDOT.Virginia.gov by the January 30th deadline and cc me.

I’d like to hear from you by this coming Friday, January 27, so that the ACA can provide relevant comments on behalf of paddlers to VDOT as well.

Thanks,
Lou
