CHICKASAW COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – Last week, construction of the trail stopped in Houlka and is now on its way to Houston. Glasgow Construction began clearing the 44-mile trail three months ago.
Tanglefoot Trail runs through three North Mississippi counties – Union, Pontotoc and Chickasaw. Phase One of the rails-to-trails project will clear brush from the rail-bed and repair nearly 30 bridges.
The 2nd phase of the project will consist of design and construction of gateway buildings in New Albany, Pontotoc, and Houston. This phase will also include rest area facilities at Ingomar, Ecru, Algoma and New Houlka.
