SCAPE is excited to announce that Town Branch Commons has officially broken ground in Lexington, Kentucky. The groundbreaking ceremony took place last week, hosted by Mayor of Lexington Jim Gray. The two-mile linear park and trail project through downtown Lexington has been six years in the making, beginning in 2012 when SCAPE won the international design competition for the project. The trail, which follows along the path of Lexington’s original water source (Town Branch), is funded by a federal TIGER Grant, state and federal grants and loans, and local investments, totaling $39.5 million of funding. The first phase of the Town Branch Commons project is scheduled to be complete by 2021. You can read more about the project here. Watch a video of the groundbreaking ceremony here.
