Topic Description:

In November 2008, the Parks and Recreation Department submitted a grant application for $209,000 for funding Phase II, the design and construction of approximately 0.7 miles of multipurpose trail at the Woods of Warrenton Subdivision to connect the existing White’s Mill trail to the Warrenton Chase Trail.  The funding source is through the Commonwealth Transportation Board’s Transportation Enhancement Program. The amount awarded was $90,000 which is being added to a previous TEA award of $60,000 for design.  Total estimated project cost is $514,000 of which preliminary engineer estimated project cost is $98,580; estimated construction costs is $416,000.
