Another section of trail scheduled for temporary closure

The section of trail from the Cottonwood Trail to US75 will need to be closed soon. Here’s the information from Richard Stauffer of the Park and Recreation Department.

Re: Additional Closure of White Rock Creek Trail from Cottonwood Creek Trail connection & US-75

We completed 1000 feet of trail from Forest Lane south behind the restaurants within 1 week. The Contractor has requested to close off another section of trail between the Cottonwood Creek Trail connection & US-75. The working space is very limited in this section & he can have the work done within 10 to 14 days weather permitting. This will allow us to complete an additional 1400 feet of trail. With the addition of this work, we will have removed & replaced 2400 feet of trail within 3 weeks. This amounts to almost two thirds of the trail and construction within the most challenging areas.

I have agreed & he will be putting together signage to identify the sections to be barricaded.

The trail from Anderson Bonner Park crossing under Forest Lane to the west side of US-75 will be open. Trail users will have to turn around at US-75. This is an inconvenience, but after this almost two thirds of the trail and construction within the most challenging areas will be complete. We will then proceed with installation of the temporary trail as needed & completion of the remainder of the project.
