Conserving Carolina has been awarded a $6.4 million grant for the purchase of the rail corridor known as the TR Line, or Proposed Ecusta Trail.
“This is a very big next step for the Ecusta Trail,” said N.C. Rep.Chuck McGrady. “There is still a lot of work to be done and a lot of processes to work through that will take time, but this is a large step forward.”
On Thursday, the N.C. Department of Transportation approved the grant, with the money to go toward the potential purchase of the corridor. . .
