The Brunswick City Commission took the next step at its Wednesday meeting toward a new pedestrian trail from Overlook Park to the foot of the F.J. Torras Causeway.

Public Works Director Garrow Alberson said the money is coming from the Georgia Department of Transportation’s Transpiration Alternatives Program, or TAP. The TAP grant is $548,000 and requires a local match of $137,000 from the city, which he said would come from the “trails and boardwalks” category of SPLOST 2022 revenue.
