The Sergei Yevich trail extension is underway.
Earlier this week, employees of the Baldwinsville Department of Public Works were digging the pathway, leveling the ground and laying stones for the extension, which will stretch to the village boundaries and eventually connect with a trail being built by the town of Lysander. If everything proceeds as planned, the stone dust trail, which currently winds along the northeastern shore of the Seneca River, will eventually wrap around the Cold Springs Peninsula.
Village Engineer Tim Baker said he anticipates the trail within the village will be complete by the end of the summer.
DPW workers were also spotted installing pedestals along the South Shore West trail. The pedestals, which will allow boaters to access power and water lines while docked along the canal wall, were partially funded through a grant.
"We hope to have some [pedestals] operational by Memorial Day," Baker said. "We've got a lot of things we are working on."
Paul Ashbarry levels the ground during construction of the Sergei Yevich trail extension, which will allow residents and visitors to walk along the northeastern shore of the river from the village's business district to the village boundary line.
