The Greystone Preserve

Run for the Hills, 5k Trail Run


June 30, 2018

 

We conquered the hills on June 2nd at the Greystone Preserve. This private 262 acre nature preserve is packed with beautiful scenery, mature oak-hickory forests, tranquil creeks with granite outcroppings, and endangered wildflowers. The race course lead our athletes  into the heart of this stunning landscape, through twists and turns, along the creeks and up over the mountainous terrain for an adventurous and breathtaking run, or walk if they preferred.  All proceeds benefited the preservation of more landscapes like this throughout the CSRA.

Race photos coming soon.  Check us out on Facebook for all the details.

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.
