After my "low stress" portion of the morning commute, I exit the river path at Rock park and head south on Rock Blvd. As I was crossing the river on the bridge, I was looking down at the path and noticed a nice little barricade across the path. I'm not sure what their up to.
If I had to guess, I'd bet something is wrong with the sprinkler system in the park and the removal of the asphalt in the trail is for a repair. Let's hope they get ambitious and fix up the path while their at it!
