Trail Notices


Kato Bridge Replacement Project:
The Snow Shoe Township Supervisors have advised the SSRT that the first phase of the project was awarded to a contractor. The contractor is responsible for tearing down the bridge and repairing concrete pillars. Phase two of the project to replace the bridge will be placed out for bids after phase one is completed.

Gas Line Project on Kato Road:
Snow Shoe Supervisors have alerted the SSRT that a new gas line will be laid on parts of the Kato Road starting in 2015. We have been advised that there may be some delays and possibly a day or so of road closings at various times during this project. But road closings will be kept to a minimal and the SSRT will be notified of road closings so we can post them on our website and facebook page. We were initially advised that there will be no weekend work. But, keep checking our website and we will try to keep you abreast of the project.

Gas Line Crossing Near Clarence Gate:
A new gas line will be installed this next summer about 100 yards up the trail from the Clarence Gate towards the Number 10 Gate. They will be crossing the trail only. We will receive a two week notice prior to any digging and the trail should only be shut down for a short time. Of course that is if there are no problems with installation of the lines etc. Signs will be placed on both ends of the ditch area being dug to alert trail users. Then a fence will be installed on both sides of the trail to stop unwanted access. This should only be a day or two job because the gas company is only crossing the trail. Keep up to date with projects by checking our website www.ssrt.org and our facebook page. Thank you all for your patience during all of this construction. The construction project will not take place on the weekend.
