Construction is progressing with paving, fencing and culvert work during October. Two locations were paused including the pedestrian bridge over Mill Creek and an area of archeological discovery; tribal monitors have been onsite with Caltrans’ archeologist, following tribal procedures. This will now be a two-year construction project. The bridge will not be finished, however the rest of trail will be available for public use this winter. The project is mostly complete, including mitigation measures.
