US provides funding for Catwalk Trail repair work
Question of the Day
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The federal government is providing $4.4 million in emergency funding for repairs to the Catwalk Trail, a scenic streamside walkway in the Gila National Forest in southwestern New Mexico.
Democratic Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich say the funding is coming from the Federal Highway Administration.
The trail sustained significant damaged as a result of monsoon rain and resulting debris flow in Whitewater Creek last September.
The senators say the federal funding will reimburse the Forest Service for emergency repairs and debris removal already done and pay for repairs and other work to trails, a bridge and viewing platforms.
According to the senators’ announcement of the funding, the part of the trail that will undergo restoration is scheduled to reopen during the summer of 2015.
