Cauley Creek Park will extend from Bell Road to the river near the Abbotts Bridge entrance of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Plans include more than 3 miles of multi-use trials, two steel pedestrian bridges, three wildlife observation decks and a river overlook deck.
The grant requires the project to be completed within two years.
In a regular meeting following the work session, Council members approved a contract to Archimetric Design and Construction in the amount of $669,521 to construct a 14-foot wide trail that stretches about 2,500 feet from the park entrance on Bell Road. Newton said, crews would break ground on the trail in October and complete the trail section by April 2021.
