ASHLAND CITY – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Department of Transportation Commissioner John Schroer announced today the award of a $398,447 transportation alternative grant that will connect three parks along Marks Creek in Ashland City.
The Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail Project is located along the bank of Marks Creek near three city parks and SR 49. The project will provide trail connections to all three parks, which are currently only accessible by automobile. It includes more than 2,000 linear feet of 10-foot wide asphalt trail, a bridge, boardwalk, retaining walls, fencing, and a trailhead with amenities. New signs, benches, and landscaping will also enhance the scenic character of the town’s greenway system.
