The City of Durham is having another meeting on the Phase E part of the American Tobacco Trail, this time dealing with the trail itself, not the bridge.  Unfortunately, for me, they’re having it on a Wednesday which means I can’t go.  So, if anyone can go I’d love to hear what they say.  Here is the full email I received about the meeting:

The City of Durham, Department of Public Works, cordially invites you to attend an informational meeting to view the proposed trail location and characteristics for the planned extension of the American Tobacco Trail from NC54, crossing over I-40, and proceeding south to the Durham/Chatham County line. The trail and not the bridge will be the focus of this meeting.

Maps showing the proposed trail will be on display, and comment sheets will be available for attendees.  Our design professional and City staff will be on hand to answer questions concerning the proposed trail. We will post much of the meeting information on or before October 17 on our website at:

Date:   Wednesday, October 22, 2008
Time:   7:00 to 9:00 PM
Place:  Durham City Hall, 1st Floor, Council Chambers
