A new look at Motts Run landing

The state Department of Game and Inland Fisheries has paved the entrance and parking lot to the popular canoe and kayak put-in landing off River Road. The parking lot had been gravel and dirt. While it provides easier access, some users say that pavement there is a bad idea, that it will hasten the transfer of vehicle fluids and trash from the lot into the Rappahannock..  I swung by the landing yesterday evening. It doesn’t appear that the surface is porous, allowing runoff to seep into the ground.

  • who me?

    Seriously, this is an issue? Why not a “Thanks for making this lot better guys” instead of getting upset? Does it really matter anyways? Same stuff comes off of I-95 and Rt. 1 and Rt. 3 and Rt. 3 Bypass and a few other crossing North and South of this lot yet they are worried about this single spot being the end all…………..
