The Coal Tower / Meade Avenue Trail is a proposed trail that will connect the Coal Tower trail with Meade Park. Funding will come from a $300,000 Transportation Enhancement (TEA) grant from Virginia Department of Transportation. The trail is currently in[when?] the final design stages and could be under construction in the spring of 2011. The item is on the MPO's Transportation Improvement Program.
The trail will be built in several phases. The city has applied for a VDOT transportation enhancement grant for a stretch between Meade Park and Meade Avenue. The section between Beer Run and 10th Street will be built when the Coal Tower development is built. A stretch from 10th Street to the Belmont Bridge will be built in 2011, according to city trail planner Chris Gensic.
