Bridge demolition above the West River Trail trail will continue the week of July 31st and will be blocked at times by construction equipment. The trail will be closed on Monday (7/31) and Tuesday (8/1) while they take down the old bridge near the trail. We encourage pedestrians to not use this section of trail on Monday and Tuesday due the work in this area, but personnel will be stationed nearby to provide warning when work is occurring overhead.
Users of the West River Trail should exercise extreme caution at intersections between construction access and the trail path. 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 August 5, 2017. Interested participants should meet the PCL+FIGG Team at the West River Trail trailhead at 8 am and the talk will begin at 8:15 am.
