Carthage walking trail expected to be finished this month

Much of the new walking trail's concrete has been poured.

A new walking trail at the Carthage Ballpark is basically finished except for a few final additions, City Manager Steve Williams said.

Williams told city commissioners at their Monday meeting that the project was just waiting on some bridge railings, a water fountain and some other final touches. He noted that when he met with the contractors for one of the last inspections, people were already using the trail and loving it.

Williams said a grand opening will be either mid-October at Potlatch or another date within the month.
