COLUMBIA CITY â€” While the Blue River Trail project is still progressing, the city asks local residents to keep away from the bridge and trail until next spring.
â€śThe project looks very nice, and Iâ€™ve received several calls from people who are interested in it,â€ť said Columbia City Park Director Mark Green. â€śBut weâ€™ve also had a lot of people walking on the trail.â€ť
During the Columbia City Park Board meeting Monday, the board discussed its thoughts about people using the trail before it is completed.
â€śThe general consensus is that we would really prefer people to stay off of the trail until next spring, and we caution the public not to use it,â€ť said Mayor Ryan Daniel.
