Firefly Trail Project, will provide for the land acquisition, design, and construction of additional length of the Firefly Trail from the end of the work being done under the SPLOST 2011 Program, generally at the intersection of Old Winterville Road and Little Oak Street, through towards the project’s eastern terminus at the county line in Winterville. A typical trail cross-section comprises of a 10 to 12-foot wide concrete trail with storm water amenities. Flexible use of construction materials and consideration of narrower trail widths may be used as necessary to keep cost within budget and allowing for more trail to be built. The project includes the design and construction of an approximately 500-foot bridge, with a 10 to 12 foot trail deck width, spanning Trail Creek in Dudley Park and South Poplar Street. This bridge, when completed will allow for a complete at grade trail from downtown Athens to the ultimate end of the trail at the county line in Winterville.
