THERMAL BELT RAIL TRAIL UPDATE

Bid Results for the Thermal Belt Rail Trail

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, NC — Earlier this month, McGill and Associates and
Odom Engineering provided information requesting that Rutherford County be the local
government entity to offer and manage a contract for services in conjunction with McGill
and Associates and Odom Engineering. The Rutherford County Commissioners selected and approved Site Development Corporation to begin the 13 mile corridor in May of the Thermal Belt Rail Trail.
The Trail Partners have also announced several exciting milestones that are taking place right now:

  • Demolition work to remove the rail & cross ties will be completed by the end of April. Some seeding and grading begins along the trail as the weather warms.
  • A logo was adopted to make a brand that is meaningful and timeless.

Many thanks to RHI Legacy Foundation for financially supporting this project.
