Ron Niland, Jonesville Greenway coordinator, announced a secured proposal at Monday’s Jonesville Town Council meeting from Anderson and Associates to provide engineering services for design of the pedestrian bridges on the Jonesville greenway.


An engineer’s “no rise” certification is required before a building permit can be issued because the bridges will be located in the designated floodway, according to Niland.


The proposal from Anderson and Associates calls for the engineers to perform a preliminary engineering report that will study the location and design of the two pedestrian bridges to be located on the greenway. Specifically, they will study the possibility of constructing conventional bridges, pre-fabricated bridges or conventional culverts.


The long-term project planned for the greenway is a 32-mile trail, starting in Jonesville and ending in Rockford. This trail will include connections to both the Yadkin River Canoe Trail and the Overmountain Victory Trail and will have bridges over Sandy Berry Creek and Fall Creek.


According to Niland, the report will look at installation costs and long-term maintenance and upkeep costs. The proposal calls for a total fee of $14,700.


The town was recently awarded a grant through N.C. Division of Water Resources for $41,750, and the town expects to receive a Federal Recreational Trails Program grant for $75,000. Niland believes these grants will be enough to fund the bridges over Sandyberry Creek and Fall Creek.
