Gov. Steve Beshear announced on Sept 26h that Lexington will received $448,150 for the Brighton Rail Trail Bridge that will connect two ends of the Brighton Rail Trail over Man O War Boulevard. The 184-foot span will be situated near the Pink Pigeon Parkway south of Hamburg Place.
Jay McChord, a member of the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council, said he was excited about the money for the Brighton Rail Trail Bridge.
"First off, I am excited any time that Lexington moves forward with trails and bike and pedestrian friendliness," he said. With $4 gasoline and ever-increasing obesity, people need more opportunities to get out of their cars, he said. Besides that, he said, the Bluegrass area has some of the world's most beautiful scenery, and "you can't enjoy that in your car."
Information from articles in the Lexington Herald Leader, September 25th and 16th.
