Village of Bellevue Receives DNR Grants for East River Trail

The Village is excited to get started on a much needed boardwalk repair project on the East River Trail in 2016.  Through a collaborative effort of grant funding from the Acquisition and Development of Local Parks, Recreational Trails Act, and Urban Rivers grants totaling over $210,000, the Village will be able to replace and repair it's 5 boardwalk sections from River Bend Terrace south to Manderly Way.  Planning has already begun with an anticipated project completion date of Fall 2016.  Once construction begins, the Village will have to close sections of the trail, so we will keep everyone posted via our blog so you are able to make alternate plans for your recreation route.  The picture below shows the 5 boardwalks to be replaced.
