Rail Trail Construction
Construction is scheduled to get underway Tuesday, October 10th on the Okanagan Rail Trail.
The Society says the trail will be closed for at least 4 months, from one kilometre south of Kickwillie Loop to Kekuli Bay Provincial Park.
Starting this week, rock scaling begins at the north end of the trail, followed within weeks by construction on the pathway.
Organizers say if they can complete the fundraising, construction can continue into the spring and they can Finish the Trail! $7.8 million is the cost to construct the first phase of the trail.
