A piece of the Valley's history could soon be revitalized for you to enjoy.
The Blue Ridge Tunnel, located in the thick woods of both Augusta and Nelson Counties, may soon be restored as a bike and horse trail.
The project depends on the CSX railroad. Although they have said that they would donate the land to the cause, it is not official yet.
"I think there is a 75% chance they will give up the land", commented Nelson County Planner Fred Boger.
The federal government is also interested in the project. They have donated $300,000 worth of grants to the project, if CSX forgo's the land.
The total estimated cost of the project is in the 1million dollar range.
