Trail news from the Brattleboro Reformer on July 7th, 2016.
A scaffold protection system is being erected on the West River Trail at the bridge intersection to protect trail users from debris and dropped items from the segmental work overhead. Please use caution while passing through the scaffolding. The system restricts the overhead clearance to eight feet. Along the trail there are intersections between construction access and the trail path, and users should exercise extreme caution at these intersections. As an additional safety precaution, users of the West River Trail are reminded to keep pets on a leash in this area.
The next trail talk will be held July 9. Interested participants should meet the PCL+FIGG Team at the West River Trail trailhead at 8 a.m. and the talk will begin at 8:15 a.m.
