Rails to Trails Program

Mayor Gahan will ask the New Albany City Council to appoint a small committee to begin discussions about the new opportunity for a Rails to Trails route from New Albany northward.

The route is 63 miles long and would traverse along the recently abandoned CSX route through some of Southern Indiana’s most scenic and natural landscapes.

Mayor Gahan is very excited about Governor Holcomb’s initiative to dedicate $90 million towards trail funding throughout the state of Indiana as announced on September 6th.

“Please check out this link and view the video for more information,” stated Mayor Gahan. “The video runs over 3 minutes, but it will help explain this once in a lifetime opportunity for New Albany and our neighbors. I look forward to working with Floyd County and other local officials as we move forward with this exciting project.”
