FARMINGTON — City leaders have agreed to partner with the county and Centerville in providing matching funds to complete the D&RGW rail trail through this portion of Davis County.
The city council recently voted 4-0 to authorize City Manager Dave Millheim to execute a federal aid agreement to help provide funding for the trail from Centerville to Farmington.
The overall trail is 22 miles long, but the last portion has not been completed because of funding issues.
The Utah Transit Authority owns the right of way and has agreed to donate the use of the trail. Overall costs for construction of the trail are estimated to be $811,568 with $720,000 coming from federal aid sources. The county and the two communities will share the local matching costs of $91,358.
