The 1.3 mile Price River pedestrian-bike trail officially began construction Monday with a ground breaking ceremony near the city's public works domes.

When it is completed sometime in October, the pathway will allow bike riders and walkers to move along the banks of the river between 600 S. Carbon Avenue to 100 North Street near Carbonville Road.

Price Public Works Director Gary Sonntag noted in his remarks at the ceremony the trail will lead from one sidewalk to another in different ends of town, without having to cross any streets along the way.

"It connects neighborhoods. It connects groups," he told the audience.

Not only will the users of the trail get to take a short-cut through town, but they'll be able to cross through wetlands and a whole riparian community of plants and animals.

Sonntag paid a compliment to Helper City, noting that it was that town's efforts to build a riverside pathway through the length of downtown the led to a vision of a non-motorized pathway all the way from Helper to Wellington.

This will be the Price segment of that long trail.

Price entered the planning mode for the path back in 2006, and it got approval for funding from the Utah Department of Transportation in 2007 for an enhancement grant.

The total project cost is $1.13 million. Of that, UDOT's contribution is $660,400. The city's obligation is being shared through a cooperative agreement with the county, which has supported the project.

Jones & Demille Engineering provide design, construction documents and engineering. Nielson Construction is building the trail.
