$900K federal grant to connect parks in Moab

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah is set to get $900,000 in federal funds for the construction of a pathway to connect Moab to surrounding national parks and public lands in the eastern part of the state.

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced the grant Monday as part of $12.5 million in federal money to improve access to national parks, forests and wildlife refuges.

A U.S. Department of Transportation statement says the grants will go toward 29 projects in 20 states.

Utah’s share will go to Grand County to fund the continued construction of the Colorado Riverway Path. The pathway will join Moab with Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, the Colorado Riverway Recreation Area and other lands.
