A relatively new part of the Alcoa greenway system is getting high praise.
The Culton Creek Greenway extension is the 2012 Tennessee Public Works Project of the Year." This award recognizes the work of city employees who designed and built the extension.
The expansion added a little more than a mile to the system, and serves the Green Meadow area. It opened last November.
Now, the project is in the running for the top public works projects in the country.
