The City of Riverside recently received a REAP Grant Award of $50,000 for the Riverside Trail. Lyle Moen, Co-Chair of Washington County Recreational Trails Committee says the grant is a huge boost to the trail but says the Riverside Trails Group is purusing funding for the final part of the trail. Construction of the trail is estimated to begin in 2011. Moen says the construction plans are currently 25% complete. The trail will run on the abandoned railroad on the south side of riverside to U.S. 218.
