Firefly Bridge Logo

Athens-Clarke County is beginning the design process for a pedestrian bridge connection for the Firefly Trail. A remnant of a wooden railroad trestle currently exists in Dudley Park; this trestle is commonly referred to as The Trail Creek Trestle or the Murmur Trestle. The Firefly Bridge over Trail Creek project will evaluate the existing structure of the trestle to understand its viability as part of the Firefly Trail system.

The design team will produce several alternative options for a future Firefly Trail connection and crossing of Trail Creek. These options are being developed within a community engagement process that will includes listening sessions, public meetings, online surveys, and a public open house.
