Rain continues to alter the work schedule on the the Great Western Trail at Cumming.

The Great Western Trail will be closed in the affected area (between G14 and 30th AVE (the Cumming section)) as needed between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. This will include the parking lot at G14. The site will be posted daily as needed. A few dry days should allow work to finish.
