Springtime on the West River Trail

Spring has sprung on the West River Trail! The river is running high, the trail edges are greening up, the wildflowers are blooming, and the trees are leafing out.

Many thanks to PCL Civil Constructors, Inc. for their efforts to keep the West River Trail open during all phases of bridge construction. Trail users should exercise extreme caution at the 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, especially in the construction area.

Please note that demolition of the old iron bridge over Route 30 will begin by the middle of May. During bridge demolition above the trail, personnel will be stationed to provide warning to pedestrians when work is occurring overhead.

Please also note that some users have reported trees and rock slides across the trail. Enjoy the trail, but be observant, and stay safe.

If you would like additional information about the bridge construction, please contact Bonnie Clark, Public Relations Officer, at bclark@pcl.com, PCL Civil Constructors, Inc., 41 Spring Tree Road, Brattleboro, Vermont 05301, 802-251-0709, www.pcl.com.
