Portion of trail closed until spring

-A A +A
By Christopher Brooke, Reporter

A three-mile section of the New River Trail State Park near Gambetta will remain closed for 150 days for safety work on the former rail line tunnel there.

The closure effects the portion of the linear state park from Fries Junction at mile marker 39.8 to Gambetta Road at 42.3 until May 1 of next year, according to park officials.

This work arose from the issuance in 2002 of a general obligation bond by the state to repair bridges and tunnels on the New River Trail, explained Jimmy Elliott, the park's assistant manager based at Cliffview.
