HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) – A half-mile road planned for construction next year will be named “Lambert Way,” in honor of the life and service of late Captain Donald Lambert with the Henrico Police Department.
A temporary sign was unveiled Wednesday afternoon, and a permanent sign will be installed once construction is complete.
Lambert, 55, was out for a run earlier this year when he was hit and killed by a car.
Lambert Way will meander west from Woodman, near Winfrey Road, and align with a road that currently serves as an entrance to Glover Park.
Officials plan to request construction bids in the spring and open Lambert Way around the spring of 2023.
