Rerouting the Kaxdigoowu Héen Dei.

Keri Williamson, CBJ project manager, describes the work on the reroute of Kaxdigoowu Héen Dei (Brotherhood Bridge Trail) as it nears completion on Monday, Oct. 14, 2019.

Erosion of the older trail along Mendenhall River brought about the need for a new trail. Construction on the trail, being done by Southeast Earthmovers, will stop for the winter and the trail will be open for the public to use.

The trail will be paved next spring.
