2023 Parkway Recreation Days Canceled Due to Ongoing Construction, Detours

WILLIAMSBURG — Due to parkway closures and current detours as a result of the Colonial Parkway Rehabilitation project, this year’s remaining Parkway Recreation Days at Colonial National Historical Park have been canceled.

They were originally scheduled for Sept. 30, Oct. 1 and Nov. 18-19

Colonial National Historical Park has held “Rec Days” since 2020, temporarily closing the parkway to motor vehicle traffic so that pedestrians and bicyclists could enjoy its use along the scenic James River. However, current construction closures, construction detours and construction traffic make closures for Rec Day potentially unsafe to park visitors, according to the Park Service.

The park will schedule future Parkway Rec Days as soon as is practical, dependent upon the progress of construction, it said.

In March 2023, Colonial National Historical Park received $122.8 million through the Great American Outdoors Act Legacy Restoration Fund for the Colonial Parkway Rehabilitation project.

Working in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration, the project will rehabilitate and extend the life of about 10.3 miles of the Colonial Parkway, the park service said.

Repairs will be made to nearly all the components in the project sections, including the road surface, eleven bridges, the Williamsburg Tunnel, drainage structures, guardrails and signage.

The project is expected to be completed in time for the nation’s 250th anniversary of independence in 2026.

The Colonial Parkway Rehabilitation website will be updated with important project news and information regarding closures, detours, and other impacts.
