Work begins on the Walton Road Bridge, Oct, 2013
Construction work began in May 2013 at the Walton Road project, across from the Loop Trail parking lot at Walton Lake. Bob Brown's crew did the fill work on the south side of Walton Rd for the realigned Loop Trail, and Schaus Vorhies Manufacturing began the preliminary bridge work on the north side of Walton Road.
