ARKANSAS RIVER TRAIL CONSTRUCTION ALERT
Little Rock Public Works and Little Rock Wastewater would like to alert all Arkansas River Trail users who plan to use the section of trail along Cantrell Road. Work has started on installing a new sewer main in that area and the contractor will have 2 large pits dug adjacent to the trail at the Episcopal Collegiate driveway. Heavy equipment and workers will be in that area until the end of December, weather permitting. The contractor also plans to work weekends to expedite the project’s completion.
The Arkansas River Trail Task Force recommends avoid using this section of the trail, if possible, until the work in that area is completed. Signage has been placed in the affected area to alert cyclists and pedestrians of the construction. If you are traveling on that section, please be considerate of the construction workers and be extremely cautious. Look for future updates on the progress of this project and planned trail detours in that area.
