AUGUSTA, GA (WJBF)— Soon you will be able to walk a little farther up the Savannah River with ease.
Crews are clearing the way for an extension to the Augusta Riverwalk. Right now, the paved section of the Riverwalk stops in between 10th and 11th Streets. Later this year, the Riverwalk will go to 13th Street.
The 3-block addition is part of the Cyber Innovation and Training Center construction, meaning the state of Georgia is paying for it. The city of Augusta is paying to remove the trees and then the state is paying for the rest. The state-run Georgia Technology Authority tells NewsChannel 6, the project costs $850,000. They also say, the new section will follow the same style as the rest of the Riverwalk terms of lighting, railings and benches.
