The bridges and culvert have been installed and look amazing! The Rosebud River and Crossfield Creek bridge installations were complex and critical to complete the trail. Spanning over 160 ft and 120ft respectively the bridges traveled from Ontario and were installed in the week of Nov 25th 2019.
Congratulations to the contractor who completed this flawlessly and on time. Also a big congrats to Alberta Trailnet who led this construction initiative!

Next tasks will be the crushed aggregate layer and signage in the spring of 2020. We will keep you posted on our progress and the grand opening ceremony! Happy Trails!
