The Arbor Drive Sidewalk Improvement Project was completed in fall 2019. The project included continuing sidewalk on Arbor Drive from the existing walkways in front of Carter Bank & Trust past Atlantic Union Bank and down Market Street.
The purpose of extending sidewalks on Arbor Drive was to connect Peppers Ferry Road with North Franklin Street. It accommodated the increased pedestrian traffic between businesses and provided a connection to the Marketplace Shopping Center, which is under redevelopment.
The project was partially funded by VDOT, providing a 50 percent match up to $119,650. The total cost of construction was $350,354.
