Starting the week of August 6th contractors will begin the first steps in our new restroom project. The sanitary connection point and the new electric service will be starting at some point during next week. There may be some temporary interruptions in the trail but detours will be posted if needed. We hope to be on track for the new building to be installed late August of early September. During the process of installation there will be some temporary closures to the trail and the drinking fountain will be out of service for a period of time. Detours will be posted if needed. Updates will be given as project nears.
