The Garbers Church Road Shared Use Path project consists of sidewalk and shared-use path improvements along Garbers Church Road, between Garbers Church Road and Thomas Harrison Middle School, and between Thomas Harrison Middle School and Westover Park. The project will connect schools, parks, and residential neighborhoods, and will extend the sidewalk and path constructed as part of the new Bluestone Elementary School.

The sidewalk portion of the project was constructed along the east side of Garbers Church Road, connecting the Bluestone Elementary School entrance to Park Lawn Drive. A diagram of the existing and planned shared-use paths is shown below. More information on the path connection to Westover Park [2MB]PDF.
