WESTMORE, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources is planning parking and trail improvements on the south end of Lake Willoughby in northern Vermont.

The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/2kjs5Ev ) that the agency has $650,000 in federal grant money to invest in the work.

Stewardship Forester Lou Bushey told the Westmore Select Board last week that the plans include off-street parking to keep vehicles off Route 5A, permanent bathrooms, and making the trails accessible to people with disabilities.

He says estimates for the envisioned improvements picked from plans developed by a Burlington firm are about $1.3 million. He says no state funds are committed to the project at this point so the improvements won’t happen all at once.

He expects the state to use the grant money to at least improve the parking this year.
