RPONTOTOC – The rails-to-trails gateway that is slated to be built this year will be located on Old Highway 15 North.
The gateway will be the starting place for bicyclists and walkers who come to Pontotoc to enter the Tanglefoot Trail.
There were three site options for the gateway, one where the old rail depot was located behind First Baptist Church, the second was on Highway 15, and a third site on Reynolds Street beside the city materials control building.
Pontotoc County Main Street Association Director Ellen Russell asked that the gateway be located downtown to capitalize on festivals.
