The Snow Shoe Township Supervisors have notified the Snow Shoe Rails to Trails that gas companies will start the gas line project on Kato Road soon. Expected start date might be May 18,2015 or sooner. Crews are expected to start on each end of the project and work towards each other. One crew will start by Gas Line 55 near the Bloody Skillet Connector Trail and the other near the Snow Shoe Mud Race Track. If necessary, at a later date, they may have to start a 3rd crew.
This project is expected to be completed by the end of September 2015.
The gas companies are going to work closely with the Township Supervisors and keep the road open for atv, utv usuage. However, there may be times where the road is narrow and the road may be shut down for a short period of time. However, they will let us know in advance so we can keep the web site updated with new information.
We do know the one section of road on the Bloody Skillet side of the Kato Bridge Crossing is narrow and when they get to this section of road, it may cause some closings.
The contractors are expected to work six days weeks so please be careful & respectful while riding in these work areas.
The township will be receiving money from this project that will be put towards the Kato Bridge Replacement Project. So, we need your help and patience until this project is complete.
We have been promised that the road will be open for this Memorial Day Weekend with no closings.
Please continue to check out the web site & face book for up to date reports. Thank you all in advance for your cooperation.
