Last Saturday, NielsonвЂ™s Construction started laying asphalt for the Price River Trail; a trail that connects 100 North (near JBвЂ™s) to Carbon Avenue at about 600 South.
The trail, which has been a long time coming, is funded mostly by UDOT with matching funds from Price City and Carbon County. When it is finished, the trail will provide walking, and bicycle recreation for area residents and visitors.
Although the trail is starting to look finished, there is still a lot of work that remains including installing fences, signs, and pouring concrete on the bridges. Price City has asked that residents stay off of the trail until it is completed. The trail should be finished by the middle of November.
вЂњIt is a matter of safety,вЂќ according to Price City Engineer Russell Seeley, вЂњWe need to get the fences put up before we allow people on the trail to provide a separation between the highway and the trail. Also there are still some construction trucks and other heavy equipment that are around and we donвЂ™t want anybody to get hurt.вЂќ
вЂњWe are excited to see this trail finished. It will be a great addition to the community,вЂќ continued Seeley, вЂњwe just want people to be safe and wait until the trail is completely finished.вЂќ
