COLUMBIA — Construction on the Grindstone Pedway Project will begin Monday, according to a press release from Columbia Public Works.
The construction will occur along Old 63 between East Broadway and Grindstone Creek. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians should expect delays and consider alternate routes, according to the release.
The project is split into north and south sections.
The north section will include several improvements, including a 1,600-foot long footpath from Bluffdale Drive to Moon Valley Road, which the path will then follow. It will also build a pedestrian bridge over Hinkson Creek connecting with Moon Valley Drive.
The south section is about 1,400 feet long. It will widen the sidewalk on the west side of Old 63 between Ashland Road and the Grindstone Nature Area.
The two sections will connect with the Hinkson Creek Trail project.
The project is expected to cost $1.6 million and is being funded by the GetAbout Columbia program, according to the release. It is expected to be completed by fall 2013.
Supervising editor is Richard Webner.
