DOUG WALKER – CITY OF ROME
Crews with S.H. Creel contracting of Powder Springs set the new bridge over Big Dry Creek Wednesday.
The bridge, located behind AdventHealth Stadium is the next link in a big loop trail that will be a part of the ECO Greenway in Rome and Floyd County.
The final section of the trail, across a pasture from the bridge to the Armuchee Connector, will be finished sometime in 2023.
A series of ADA-accessible switchbacks that will bring the trail from the pasture up to the level of the sidewalk along the Armuchee Connector is the major challenge to completing the trail.
