Proposed money from NRDP funds could help complete Silver Bow Greenway


First, the potential good news.

Money tentatively earmarked for the Silver Bow Greenway from the state’s Natural Resource Damage Program could allow the completion during 2024 of the greenway segment from Miles Crossing to German Gulch.

The proposed funding from the Natural Resource Damage Program could help open the stretch of Silver Bow Creek Greenway between German Gulch and Miles Crossing.

This stretch through scenic and historic Durant Canyon appeals to a host of greenway denizens — walkers, bicyclists, runners, anglers, history buffs and more. It would add about four miles to the 15 already completed. As envisioned, the greenway will ultimately total about 26 miles.

Next, the more complicated news.

Money for the uncompleted stretch of greenway from the rest area at Montana Highway 1 to Stewart Street in Opportunity would require the Greenway Service District to cough up a percentage match. And that is unlikely to be a walk in the park.
