- A curb and gutter along the cul de sac and a sidewalk 70 feet long and five feet wide connecting to the existing sidewalk toward Medford Drive.
- A six-food wide asphalt walkway about 80 long between the two parts of McWhorter and extending toward Markham Street.
- Landscaping would be added, including six trees, grass, and shrubs.
The trail project budget is about $200,000, for purchasing land easements from VDOT, utilities relocation, design, permitting, drainage improvements, and construction.
Construction should start at the end of 2017, and the project should be finished by late winter or early spring in 2018. The funds are from commercial and industrial tax revenue.
A couple of bicyclists at the meeting said the project is needed because McWhorter Place is a good route to avoid Little River Turnpike but the unpaved area fills up with debris from flooding and becomes impassable.
