Paving, bridge extend
Rails to Trails project

Ronnie Pierce (second, from left), manager of Barton's of Walnut Ridge, looks over the bridge on the newly completed section of the Rails to Trails with 'Trails' board members (from left): Junior Briner, Sherry Moore and Brett Cooper. Other board members are Lee Turnbull and Sue Whitmire. Barton's donated materials and labor for the bridge.
Brett Cooper, Rails to Trails board member, updated the Kiwanis Club recently on progress and plans for the Rails to Trails project. In August, another mile of the trail, extending from Swan Street (behind Barton's of Walnut Ridge) to County Road 438, which is the Old Walnut Ridge Road, was paved.

"We're very pleased with the usage it's getting, especially the new section," Cooper said.

The newly paved stretch includes a bridge over Village Creek. Cooper said Barton's of Walnut Ridge donated both materials and labor to convert the railroad bridge into a suitable bridge for the trail.
