Waynesboro Trail Project Overview

Starting in 2001, the small town of Waynesboro, VA embarked on big dreams to create a multi-phased greenway tucked in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. As a result, the South River Greenway is growing annually providing miles of access for pedestrians, cyclists, fishermen, and paddlers to the soothing river’s edge. The DeceroTM Design Team was inspired by the charming town and lush natural setting of the Waynesboro Trail Bridge. Therefore, this design features a sleek classic timber picket rail gliding around the deck edges, central wideouts for resting, and an earthy color palette. Although the trail provides great access for pedestrians, our field team was challenged with narrow and low clearance site access. The specialized knowledge of our team was used to procure & utilize select machinery that could adapt to the site as well as, facilitate a flawless build. YBC was pleased to connect countless residents & visitors to the various cherished amenities of Main Street & Parks on their daily journey.

Client Testimonial
