Farewell Creek Trail extension under construction. Keep out.

Posted on June 16, 2021 04:17 PM

Residents must keep out of the construction area marked by fencing on Farewell Creek Trail. For your safety and the safety of the workers, trail users must respect the fenced limits of the construction area. We have noticed an increase in the number of people removing the barriers and accessing the area. This is very dangerous. Construction machinery, open excavations, material stockpiles, and rough terrain are all safety hazards to trail users and may cause injury or harm.

We ask everyone to please...
