As reported in the Daily Post, Council voted 6-0 the award Bid No. 2016-12 in the amount of $1,764,764.05 plus applicable Gross Receipts Tax to Star Paving Company. This provides for finishing the Canyon Rim Trail so it connects the east end by the Los Alamos Co-Op to the Smith's parking lot end.
The big ticket item is a bridge (similar to the one near the East end of the trail) to get the trail across the west end of DP Canyon (follow these links for a description and a map). Thus, providing a walkable and bikeable alternative to NM 502 between the east end of town and Airport Basin/Food Co-Op and the Holiday Inn.
See Carol's report for more details and I'll post more here when I get them confirmed.
