A serial killer is considered the most likely scenario in the Colonial Parkway Murders. They were committed between 1986-1989. At least eight people along the Colonial Parkway were killed in this three-year span. Three couples were murdered and one couple is missing and presumed to be dead. The killer has never been identified and the case remains UNSOLVED!
- Construction stretched over twenty-six years through the Depression, World War II, and funding shortages.
- The Parkway allows for a stress-free drive from Yorktown to Jamestown that avoids the regular traffic
- The parkway is made of stone pavement to give the feel of old-timey highways
- The parkway connects Virginia’s historic triangle: Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown.
- The parkway runs along the York River and millions of cars travel this route each year.
- The parkway was built to resemble highways of the past so the two-lane river-gravel road doesn’t have any line-markings.
- The parkway is only two lanes with a center lane for passing and the maximum speed limit is a mere 45 miles per hour
- Although the park closes at sunset the parkway stays open to traffic
- Construction began in the spring of 1931 in Williamsburg.
- The parkway construction was hit with delays from the start.
- There were design and routing conflicts. Limited funding due to the Great Depression and World War II stretched construction over a 26-year period.
- The parkway was not completed until 1955 but is considered an architectural success as the design was meant to fit seamlessly into the natural and historical beauty of Virginia.
- Roadtrippers.com, says the Parkway is America’s Most Calming Scenic Drive, with it’s “mostly lined with trees that block any views of modern society
