It is anticipated that the engineering and environmental stages will be completed in FY 13. Construction will begin as directed by TDOT after all clearances are obtained. It is anticipated that this project will not require the full expenditure of funds that are designated in the current TIP and are being requested to move into the 14-17 TIP, but until completion of the project this cannot be known for certain. Any funds that are left unexpended would be moved to one of the other Greenway projects.
It should be noted that all of the federal funds on this and all of the greenway projects are HPP funds designated directly to Smyrna by Congress. The project will be managed by Town staff, including the Town Planner and the Director of Parks and Recreation in conjunction with TDOT. The Town of Smyrna has constructed approximately 9.9 miles of greenways over the past several years, much of which has been constructed as recreation trails within local parks as well as connections between the library, parks, and neighborhoods. Many of these have also been constructed as sidewalks in conjunction with road improvement projects, including 3 different phases of
improvements to Rock Springs Road and two phases of improvements to Enon Springs Road.
