Thunder Bay Trails has been notified that the Department of Natural Resources will fund some needed repairs at the Norway Ridge Pathway. Blake Gingrich, Unit Supervisor Parks & Recreation Division, stated that monies have been committed for replacement of the bridge/boardwalk identified as site 6. This is the bridge that TBTA has repaired on a yearly basis after the spring snowmelt. Gingrich stated that the replacement is scheduled for late summer/early fall of this year. It is expected that TBTA volunteers will help with the project.

TBTA would like to thank Blake for his efforts in securing the funding for the needed repairs.

UPDATE: DNR Parks & Recreation Division has removed the boardwalk at sign post # 8. The treated lumber has been salvaged and can be used for future projects at Norway. Park Supervisor Blake Gingrich indicates that the new boardwalk/bridge could be in as early as this week. A big Thank You to Blake and his crew.

Randy Fairbanks, President TBTA
