Lower Howard’s Creek is currently in the middle of a trail improvement project funded by a Federal Transportation Enhancement (TE) grant. James Miles Construction is the contractor doing all this wonderful work.
He is currently taking a break to let the site dry out from all the rain we've had in the last 6 weeks. He started the clearing and grubbing in March, and has rebuilt several hundred feet of old stone walls along the Salt Springs Trace, which ran from Fort Boonesborough to the Lower Blue Licks. In addition to rebuilding walls and clearing the old road, he has built several bridge abutments over tributary streams within the Preserve, and has rebuilt the original retaining walls leading to the creek ford near our suspension bridge, as well as a new set of steps to access the bridge.
