Deltaville Shared Use Path Costs Escalating

The Deltaville Shared Use Path project faces hurdles as costs escalate, prompting supervisors to seek additional funds and a time extension. Originally slated under the Transportation Alternative Program, the project encountered underestimated costs and pandemic-related construction increases. With limited local funding, the county is reallocating resources, delaying other projects to prioritize the path. Supervisors are urging for maximum allocation from the Transportation Alternative Program and committing to meet the required match. Despite challenges, the county remains dedicated to delivering the project earlier than the projected 2027 completion date.
