Construction of Sections 1A and 1B started in the spring of 2014. It included construction of two new bridges, #13 over Mount Vernon Street in St. J, and #17d spanning Whiteman Brook in Danville. Other bridges were re-decked and some were replaced out right. Ditches were restored to their original, working order and culverts were cleaned or replaced. The trail was leveled out and the new surface was laid down smooth. Once the trail was completed, the signs, railings, and other finishing touches were installed. With all the work complete, the trail was opened for walkers, runners, snowmobilers, dog sledders, bikers, equestrians, and skiers in the fall/winter of 2015.
