Hiker Biker Trail Construction

As of 2008 December 15, construction has started on the "Alternative 5" Hiker Biker Trail (layout map image) and bridge across Veirs Mill Road.

As of 2009 September 24, pavement has begun on segments of the trail near the parking lot of Aspen Hill Local Park. The paving is a special highly-pervious concrete mix from which all fines have been removed to render the surface more porous to water.

As of 2011 February 7, the bridge is open to the public.
