Chico’s Horseshoe Lake Trail is getting the final touches in the construction to become more handicap friendly.
“It will make it a lot easier for people with wheelchairs or disabilities to be able to access this area and enjoy it,” said Dan Efseaff, City of Chico Parks & Natural Resources manager.
The hard work will make the area accessible under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
To pay for this project, the City of Chico used more than $175,000 from a state grant.
“The grant provides money for materials but not much money for our staff time,” Efseaff said. “And with the cuts, scheduling this out has probably been the biggest challenge.”
The California Conservation Corps was brought in to help with the labor.
This project will be complete by early November.
