Cedar Bluff gets grant for park/trail phaseSo our highway funding is in such direful need of cash that we can blow a quarter of a million transportation dollars on a walking trail in Tazewell County.

Cedar Bluff is one step closer to having a trail around a portion of the town by contributing their 20 percent of a matching grant from the Virginia Department of Transportation.
