ROWLESBURG, W.Va. (AP) - The federal government has awarded a $24,000 grant to improve access to the Cheat River in Preston County.

Friends of the Cheat executive director Amanda Pitzer tells The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/V0lleb ) that the funding will be used to design and build a river access at a railroad trestle in Rowlesburg.

Pitzer says the project is expected to be completed in about two years.

The river access will be part of the 40-mile Upper Cheat Water Trail. The trail runs between Rowlesburg and Hendricks in Tucker County.

The grant from the Federal Highway Administration was awarded through the state Division of Highways’ Transportation Alternatives Recreation Trail program.
