PROVO — The Provo Reservoir pipeline may be finished, but that doesn’t mean construction work on the Provo Reservoir Canal Enclosure Project in the area is over.
The corridor to the canal, also known as the Murdock Canal, has begun to look more like a trail. But the Provo River Water Users Association is warning residents that heavy equipment and construction vehicles are still operating along the corridor, and that it is not open for recreation.
"We understand residents are eager to take advantage of the enclosed canal for recreational activities during the warm weather — but it is simply not safe," Gerber Construction spokesman Brad Sunderland said. "For their own safety, residents need to remain off the corridor until the trail is officially opened to the public."
The trail, which will be 15 feet wide, will include three paved lanes — a bike lane in each direction and a pedestrian lane — and an unpaved equestrian trail. It will connect to other recreational trails, including the Provo River Parkway Trail and the Jordan River Parkway Trail.
It is scheduled to be finished next spring.
