Officials break ground at Linear Park in Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - City officials broke ground on the construction of South Lumpkin Road Linear Park on Friday.

This project will reconstruct an abandoned railroad and create a multi-use path similar to the Fall Line Trace.

The two mile trail will begin just north of Old Cusseta Road and end south past Torch Hill Road.

"So what you're going see on this two mile trail is not just the connection of civic resources and our residents, but you're going to see people having fun and getting around. I can be both," Mayor Tomlinson said.

City officials also plan to build a pedestrian bridge over Victory Drive.The Linear park trail is scheduled to be completed in 18 months.
