Old Pass Road

Crews work to repave a section of Old Pass Road in 2015.

Speaking of creative community endeavors, props to the Old Pass Road Repair Project, its champion, Jim Verdone, and private donors who’ve been working to patch and improve the pathway.

To rehabilitate the historic wagon road turned 3.5-mile pathway — a recreational gem that attracts everyone from buggy-driven newborns to octogenarians — Verdone is working with Friends of Pathways to raise $200,000. The county is committing to chip in another $200,000.

This partnership promises to pave the way for more residents to stay fit while reveling in the natural wonders in our backyard.
