NOTICE OF WORK ON TRAILS - BEWARE
HERE IS AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE (ESPECIALLY FOR MEMBERS OF REGION 2) FROM BEN CYR, NBATVF TRAIL COORDINATOR
Hi to all,
Last night I was contacted by a sub contractor for NB Power that some logging activity will take place from October 23, 2017 to December 20, 2017 on the rail bed in Kedgwick for a distance of about 837 meters. It is behind "Arpin Porte et Fenêtre" and route 17 by the Irving Service Station. NB Power is working to build a new power line parallel to route 17 up to Whites Brook. The trail will not be closed but this is to advise riders to ride slowly in that particular area cause there might be logging trucks in the area from time to time, so be very careful. The logging company will install the proper signage on the trail.
