A vote Tuesday evening (May 14) could bring a new section of the Swamp Rabbit Trail to Simpsonville.
The Simpsonville City Council is expected to vote on the proposed extension, which would go from Trade Street in downtown Simpsonville, travel along Southeast Main following the railroad tracks, to Fairview Road. It would be 10 feet wide, enough to accommodate bikes, runners and walkers. Cost for the project would be nearly $400,000 and outside of the city’s current budget.
If money for this extension is approved by the Simpsonville City Council, work could begin as early as July.
