ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Riverwalk trail will soon expand in front of Thronateeska Heritage Museum in Downtown Albany. Right now, part of the trail ends behind the old depot at the platform. For security reasons, the platform is locked when the center is closed and during events.

The trail extension will cost about $20,000 and be paid with Local Sales Taxes. It should highlight the museum and Wetherbee planetarium currently under construction.  Director Tommy Greggors said, "This will allow us to bring the trail around to the front of the building and put people out on Roosevelt right in front of the new building. It will be open and accessible."

The planetarium and trail extension are expected to be complete and open in September.
