Centenial Trail Construction Allert Update and more news about long distance trails.

As  noted in our previous blog page announcement, a large section of the Centennial Trail is getting a major repair due to problems with trees roots buckling the pavement.

Here are some photos of the work being done on the Centennial Trail:

At the same time farther north, despite the rainy weather, Sonohomish County Public Works is repairing and decking the historic Railroad Bridge over Boulder River on the Whitehorse Trail.  This is the next to the last bridge repair needed as Snohomish County Parks makes rapid progress toward a complete opening of the Whitehorse Trail, possibly less than a year from now.

Centennial Coalition members recently visited another rails to trails park along the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie, NY and shared these photos: 

New York State Parks has resurrected this old railroad bridge to become Walkway over The Hudson, which, as the sign says, is the longest pedestrian bridge in the world.

The bridge is one and a quarter miles long and the walking deck is 200 feet above the river.
