The Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM), in partnership with the City of Dothan and Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce, invites members of the media to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new paved sidewalk/trail along east Highway 84.
Discussions to create a paved trail on the east side of Dothan began in 2016, with the goal of creating a designated walkway and biking path for residents. In 2018, the City of Dothan secured a grant from the Alabama Department of Transportation and provided matching funds to develop a shared pedestrian and biking trail along East Highway 84. Construction on the paved trail began in mid-2018 and was completed this spring.
The trail starts near the ACOM campus on Cat Way and continues along Highway 84 toward the Ross Clark Circle. The opening of this trail demonstrates Dothan’s continued commitment to health and wellness initiatives across the area and marks a significant milestone in the future development of the East 84 Corridor.
