The Birmingham City Council approved a measure today granting a temporary construction easement enabling the Freshwater Land Trust to start building the Jones Valley Trail Extension (JVTE).

The new extension picks up at the end of the Rotary Trail on 32nd Street near Marx Brothers and Sloss Furnaces and ends on Avondale’s 41st Street—the heart of the just christened entertainment district. Once complete, the new transformational trail will connect downtown Birmingham to Avondale.
