The last section of the Huckleberry trail to be completed (From the Moore Farm on VT farm property to Linwood Lane off of Glade road) will be placed out to bid by August 1st. The Town has funded it through the Capital Improvement Program.
Once the bids are received back, the Town of Blacksburg will review and award to a contractor.
When a schedule is set – construction should take about 1 year to complete. The Town hopes to have the project completed sometime during 2018. This new section will complete the Huckleberry Trail from Christiansburg through Blacksburg and Virginia Tech to the National Forest. Thanks to Dean Crane-CPRP, Director of Blacksburg Parks & Recreation for this update. (Status as of 2017-08-15).
