Trail construction projects continues in northern Utah
The Weber River Parkway committee continues to work diligently to create two miles of trail from the south end of the Riverdale City Parkway east to the Uintah Bridge. Because of last year’s spring flooding, it became necessary to relocate the proposed pedestrian bridge site. While this has slowed our progress, we are moving forward with identifying a new location and securing agreements allowing us to build the trail. Once all requirements are met, construction can begin either later this year or next summer when waters have receded.
Weber Pathways is partnering with Weber County and the U.S. Forest Service to complete the Pineview Loop Pathway trail. Weber County is providing its right of way over most of the northern and eastern section of the loop and is the project manager for design and construction. The U.S. Forest Service is working with Weber Pathways to complete the necessary analyses and acquire associated permits to secure the corridor through Forest Service land. In addition, the Forest Service is providing materials for trail and trailhead construction. Weber Pathways
