I was looking through some of the current developments, and the majority of departments have signed off on the $1 million canal expansion.

The trail spur is expected to be an important connector that will better link the canal trails with downtown Augusta and the 13th Street bridge, which will help bicyclists get from the canal to North Augusta’s Greeneway Trail System more easily.
Here's a few pictures of the canal....

Pretty much anything woould help. It would be nice if they would appropriately stripe the 13th street bride to allow a small cycling lane Northbound. I ride to work in North augusta and riding the elevated sidewalk on the bridge is hairy, especially when there are pedestrians. It should be noted that my riding the sidewalk is illegal but I'll risk it until they stripe the road...not that THAT will prevent being hit. Once across the bridge the Greenway is excellent.
