Residents are getting a first look at plans to expand Montgomery’s Riverfront.

The Riverfront Greenway Trail will connect the Riverfront to parts of North Montgomery.  

Lois Cortell with the City of Montgomery shared the plans to build close to a mile long walking and biking trail starting at Riverfront Park.

The project would not be possible without a $35,000 donation from the Montgomery Lions Club to design this next phase of the trail.

An additional 1,500 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were administered in Montgomery Friday on the final day of the city’s week-long drive-up vaccination clinic.

Thousands of essential workers from across Alabama came to Montgomery this week for the opportunity to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“It definitely puts my mind at ease, because for the past few months you’re somewhat, at least I have been, terrified to go to work,” said Yovodka Davidson, a teacher for Montgomery Public Schools who received her first shot.
