City closing river trail that leads to Cottonwood Island Park

Construction project starts Tuesday and will continue through June 14
The city is planning repair work that will close the river trail (shown in red) that runs along the Nechako River from Cameron Street to Cottonwood Island Park starting Tuesday until June 14.

If you’re thinking about talking a walk, run or ride on the Heritage River Trail on the south bank of the Nechako River that leads from the west into Cottonwood Island Park, you better do it before next Tuesday.

The city intends to close the trail that day for repairs from Cameron Street Bridge to the Replica Bridge near the Central Interior Railway Museum parking lot.

The $150,000 project, funded by the Trail Rehabilitation Capital Projects budget, will remove sections of cracked an uneven asphalt wore out over time and damaged by tree roots and replace that with a gravel trail.

Work will start Tuesday and continue through June 14.

The city is asking people to avoid the area under construction and pay attention to signage.
