Durango Parks and Recreation began a resurfacing project this week along the Animas River Trail behind Durango High School.

Work will begin with tree pruning and the creation of a temporary trail alongside the current trail. As the project progresses, the asphalt path will be removed and replaced with a new concrete path. The work is being done between Rank Park and Demon Bridge.

“The path will have a smooth surface and will stay dry in the summer and ice-free in the winter,” said Ture Nycum, director of Parks and Recreation.

Another part of the project will be improving drainage underneath the trail. Goff Engineering is finalizing its design for the drainage around the wetland area.

The eight- to 10-week project is expected be finished sometime in mid-December.
