Paving from Chimney Park to a pedestrian tunnel will be finished in the next two weeks, according to Cheryl Delk, special projects coordinator with the county. The section from Ramsey Drive to Martin Street and to the pedestrian tunnel should be complete this week, Delk said, with the entire trail completed by December. The project includes boardwalks over streams and wetlands that will be installed over the next two months.

The trail looks beautiful. I wish it could open sooner. It's good to see positive work being done in Newton County.

On August 23, 2010 the special projects coordinator stated the following with reference to this EHS to library trail. "You can see how much we've put into it and how important it is to complete the project so children can walk to school," Delk said. My cynical question is just how many EHS high school students along this route are "really" going to walk to school along this unlighted trail, especially when it is hot or cold, raining, snowing, when it is dark, etc.? By time most HS students get their drivers license they forget how to walk.

I was not aware that any NCSS students are allowed to walk to and from school. I have seen school buses stop within sight distance of a middle school to allow a child off.
