This project will be accommodating of major running events scheduled for the 2015 summer season. The trail will be completely re-opened the Friday through Sunday of each scheduled event. The conditions may not be paved, but the trail surface will be smooth, compacted gravel and safe for runners (roller blades, skates and roller skiers are not advised to use trail until re-paved). Please use caution in construction zones.
