Gov. Robert Bentley has approved a $80,000 grant to pay for
signs to be placed at various locations along the 2,500-mile Alabama Scenic
River Trail. The signs will help provide directions and other information to
those navigating the network of rivers, streams and lakes.
The Scenic River Trail association anticipates posting at
least 200 signs along the state waterways. The signs will help identify current
location, lay of the waterway and take-out points, as well as locations for
gas, food and lodging. The signs will also provide directions to points of
interest and provide warnings to boaters about fast water and navigation obstacles.
our history, Alabama's waterways have attracted interest, first as a means of
exploration and commerce and now as a route for recreation and tourism,"
Bentley said. "The Alabama Scenic River Trail will allow people to travel our
rivers and creeks, seeing the state much as our ancestors did."
Scenic River Trail association believes the signs will encourage more
recreational use of the state's waterways, and will also increase economic
opportunities for outfitters and area merchants. The SRT association has
already started a pilot program, placing signs along Terrapin Creek in northeast
was awarded from funds made available to the state under the Federal Highway
Administration's Recreational Trails Program. The Alabama Department of
Economic and Community Affairs administers the program in Alabama.
