Metro Parks ready to build next chunk of Camp Chase trail | Columbus Dispatch

Signs mark the Camp Chase multiuse trail where it crosses Alkire Road.
Metro Parks is to spend $2.9 million for the next link of the Camp Chase multiuse trail — a 1-mile section between Hall Road and Sullivant Avenue that crosses over I-270.
The Metro Parks board awarded the contract to the Righter Co. yesterday.
The park district received $1.98 million from the federal government for the project, including $135,000 that was spent last year to put in a bridge pier. The bridge over the freeway will be a little longer than a football field.
The park board also approved spending an additional $289,951 with H.R. Gray for construction administration and inspection.
The work is expected to begin by the end of June and be completed by the end of the year, said Steve Brown, chief landscape architect for Metro Parks.
