Truman Linear Park Trail
What is the status of the Truman Linear Park Trail?

The Truman Linear Park Trail (TLPT) is a proposed multiuse trail that will extend from 52nd Street and Bee Road to Lake Mayer Community Park.  An 8- to 10-foot wide paved trail will be constructed, including boardwalks to cross wetlands. Federal funds are allocated for the project with a 20% local match.

In February 2015, Chatham County and the City of Savannah agreed to and began the process of amending the project to split it into two parts:

•    Part A of the project will complete the multiuse trail from Lake Mayer to DeRenne Avenue, to be implemented by Chatham County.
•    Part B of the project will complete the multiuse trail from DeRenne Avenue to 52nd Street/Bee Road, to be implemented by the City of Savannah.

The City of Savannah has agreed to maintain both parts of the Trail once complete.  The County is currently developing a preliminary design for Part A of the Trail and will schedule a Public Information Open House in early December for the public to review and provide feedback.  The City is currently identifying funds for the local match requirement for Part B and will then proceed with preliminary design.  Additional information will be forthcoming regarding project timeline as developed.
