MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama's Scenic River Trail will be getting signs altering boaters to navigation obstacles, takeout points, and locations for food, gas and lodging.

Gov. Robert Bentley has awarded $80,000 in federal recreation funds for signs along the 2,500-mile trail of navigable rivers, streams and lakes.

The Scenic River Trail Association estimates the grant will help provide at least 200 signs. The association says the signs will encourage more recreational use of Alabama's waterways and increase opportunities for outfitters and merchants along the trail.

The association has already started a pilot program of providing signs along Terrapin Creek in northeast Alabama.
