Ribbon cutting scheduled for new walking path in Jackson Co., IL

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - If you like to discover new places to exercise, head over to the University Mall in Carbondale on Saturday and watch the ceremonial opening of a new path.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on April 30 at 1 p.m. in front of the mall on East Main Street, followed by a walk along the route to see all that it has to offer.

The multi-use path gives folks a safe place to exercise and a way to commute to many of the local shopping sites and restaurants.

The project is the brainchild of the Jackson County Healthy Communities Coalition.
