Construction will begin soon on railbed trail for Waycross

A town built around railroads will soon have a trail where trains once rumbled through town.

The Waycross City Commission is perhaps weeks away from giving winning contractor Greene Concrete Construction the notice to proceed on turning an 1,800-foot section of railroad bed into a multi-use trail, city engineer Jessica Deal said. Greene Concrete’s $513,203 bid was the lowest of three, and $300,000 of that funding will come from a transportation enhancement grant.
