Pipe Replacement

At the beginning of the week of Nov. 4, 2019,  the SSRTA volunteers replaced a pipe at Peale Crossing Side of Peale Tunnel. Ron Gillette, Patrick Warefield, Gary Halsnik, Andy Basalla & Larry Mayes helped with the pipe replacement. Gary Halsnik did a great job installing head wall with help from Patrick and Ron. The existing pipe was totally plugged and replaced with a pipe that was donated by help from Bob Biggans & HRI. We want to thank them for the donation. We were able to install the new pipe prior to the winter season and possible wash out of trail. A 20ft piped was about twice as long as existing pipe so trail is much wider in the area now.
