Chicopee Woods awarded $100K grant for new bike trail bridge
A narrow wooden bike trail bridge spanning Walnut Creek will soon be replaced using part of a $100K grant for Chicopee Woods. The grant will be used to replace two trail bridges near Walnut Creek with one bridge.
Bikers can rejoice for better bridges on the way thanks to a $100,000 Georgia Department of Natural Resources grant awarded to the Chicopee Woods Area Park Commission. The funding will go toward replacing bridges in the mountain bike trail system in the Walnut Creek area north of Interstate 985 and a Walnut Creek tributary. “We’re really grateful, of course, for this, because those trails have absolutely no support other than grants and direct donations,” said Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association Executive Director Tom Sauret.
