Residents Inconvenienced to Ensure Safety of Zimmerman Trail

Posted: Updated:

Residents living along the Rims have been without their direct route to the West End for over a week.

Jani McCall, Council Member, says the project to reopen Zimmerman Trail will take until June and has been estimated to cost between one and two million dollars.

McCall says residents who live in her ward understand why the trail is closed and have not voiced too many concerns.

Andrea Horrell lives along the Rims and says the closure of Zimmerman Trail has changed her daily routine. However, Horrell says she's ok with the closure, as long as the Trail is reopened and it's safer than before.

McCall says the process to reopen Zimmerman Trail will be clearing off six areas of rock that are considered not safe, fixing the road, and replacing the guard rail.
