FRIES — A proposed birding trail in Fries is moving forward, as town council members learned at their Dec. 4 meeting.
In November, organizers of the trail brought their plan to council, but town officials were reluctant to give approval without some clarification that a state transportation grant could be used for the project.
Council received a response from consultants the Lane Group concerning the status of the $185,000 Virginia Department of Transportation grant for a birding trail and river walk.
