Root River Trail is open once again from flooding last week.

Bike Pic Sept 30, Root River Trail is Open Once Again from Flooding

With the exception of a 50 foot length of blacktop between, Whalan and Peterson on the Root River Trail, the popular recreational trail survived the heavy rains and flooding last week. The MN DNR office announce that the trail completely open.

Also, the repaving of the trail between Peterson and Rushford planned, which was supposed to start on Monday, Oct. 3 will not happen until the spring of  2017.  The contractor is way behind with other projects and did not want to rip up the trail if he couldn’t finish it this fall.  His new completion date will be May 26, 2017.
