Charleston Rail to Trail Project Facing Deadline

The City of Charleston is facing a deadline to use federal money to help purchase the CSX Railroad Bridge on the city's west side.

They are expected to apply a federal grant that will help turn the bridge into a bicycle and foot bridge.

The city has been turned down twice.

They will have to give up $800-thousand Congresswoman Shelly Moore Capito gave them two years ago, if it's not used soon.

The Rail to Trail is planned to stretch from South Charleston to Coonskin Park.
