Run for the Hills, 5k Trail Run

New Date: June 30, 2018


We’re excited to announce that Run for the Hills 5k has been rescheduled to June 30th. Thanks to everyone who participated in our survey!

However, we need your help; some of our volunteers aren’t able to make the new date. In order to make this race happen, we need 20 more volunteers on the course, at our water stations, and at the finish line. Email bethany@csrlt.org to volunteer today.

Replacing the I-20 Bridges over the Savannah & Canal

In 2018, the GA and SC Departments of Transportation will replace the Interstate 20 Bridges crossing the Augusta Canal and Savannah River. The project is estimated to cost $80M and will include 3 Eastbound and 3 Westbound lanes for vehicular traffic, as well as 2 lanes to be used as shoulders.

The I-20 Bridges can easily serve as a vital link not only for vehicular traffic, but for bicyclists and pedestrians as well. The I-20 Bridges connect two halves of a major public greenway and trail system in Augusta-Richmond and Columbia Counties, GA and Aiken County, SC. By adding a buffered 9th lane for bicyclists/pedestrians, the Departments of Transportation could effectively connect over 150 miles of trails, two State Welcome Centers, over 1,000 acres of Public Greenspace, a major retail and residential area and create an iconic tourist destination for both states.
