MILTON Ga. – Milton’s City Council approved an agreement, Monday, Dec. 2 between the Georgia Department of Transportation and the city of Milton to do a conceptual study for improvements of multi-use trails and connection to the Big Creek Greenway.

Public Works Director Carter Lucas said this study will look at the feasibility of making the connection between the multi-use trails and the Big Creek Greenway.

“The intent is to ultimately connect all of the schools, churches, parks, residential and commercial areas along the Cogburn Road corridor over to the Big Creek Greenway,” Lucas said.

If the trail connection is achievable, the city will be able to continue developing other areas of Milton’s trail system as part of a larger regional network of trails.

The Alpharetta and Forsyth County trails are a good indication of the value placed on these types of systems by the community, he said.

The study will consider possible trail routes as well as the cost of the various components of the project.

The study is projected to be completed by the end of 2014.
