Browns Island - Richmond Virginia

Walkway at Brown's Island

Arch at Old Train Station Richmond Virginia

Archway at the (still functioning) historical train station on Main Street. That's the super-highway I-95 in view beyond the arch. I-95 is the major vehicle artery from Maine to Florida with estimates of daily vehicle traffic of 72,000 to 300,000 during holidays. Between Washington DC and Richmond, VA there is significantly growing traffic flows. The distance between the two seems like it would mitigate the back-and-forth travel of commuters, but this is not the case, though the Virginia light rail line is the dedicated method for getting a worker in Richmond to DC (and visa versa).
