ACC Gov Opens Bidding Process for $4 Million Firefly Trail Portion

Firefly Trail, Inc.

Pedestrians, bikers, and other users of Athens-Clarke County’s Firefly Trail may see more open pavement soon.

The Athens-Clarke County Government recently opened the bidding process for a section of the Firefly Trail that spans over two and a half miles from Spring Valley Road to the City of Winterville.

This planned portion will be the final section of the Firefly Trail, a multi-use recreation path funded by Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, or TSPLOST, revenue.

Preliminary plans for the Spring Valley Road to Winterville part of the trail were approved in 2020, and construction was originally slated for last summer. It is currently projected to cost between three and a half to four million dollars.

A pre-bid conference will be held at 10 am on July 16th at City Hall, where officials will answer questions related to the project.
