Work to Begin on McClellan Spur
Anniston City Planner Toby Bennington says, the McClellan Spur is a project the city of Anniston is eager to get to work on. The spur connects to the abandoned Norfolk Southern right of way. Anniston plans to tie in the right-of-way from Mike Tucker Park to downtown Anniston which will eventually become Chief Ladiga Trail. The spur is seven-tenths of a mile long and proceeds East to McClellan Boulevard to Alabama Highway 21. The plan is to extend the right-of-way to Alabama Highway 21 for future access of biker and pedestrian use across Alabama Highway 21 to McClellan. Bennington adds, the project will take no more than two to two-and-a-half months once construction starts.
