Rotary Trail in Context

In case you've been wondering what is happening in the Railroad Cut along First Avenue South, the Rotary Trail is in now under construction.



In case you missed it, here is a nice update of the project in context. It was written by Phillip Ratliff for B-Metro.



Excerpt:

In the coming months, a cadre of funders and designers will transform the cut into a gorgeous, and hopefully thriving, pedestrian pathway.

Birmingham’s Rotary Club chapter is spearheading the project, which has an estimated cost of $3.5 million, through a competitive process marking their centennial. When completed (it has an estimated completion date of spring 2015), the Rotary Trail, as it will be called, will anchor new development and provide a crucial segment in the city’s extensive network of bike lanes and pedestrian walkways.
