PEDESTRIAN TUNNEL AND ROAD CLOSURE BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Many in the community and surrounding rural area have expressed concerns about the timing as well as for the need for the pedestrian tunnel that will soon be under construction on Highway 62 near the fish pond here in Magrath. It is important in this regard to provide some needed background information.

In December 2017 the Town of Magrath and Cardston County approved The Magrath Regional Trails Master Plan working closely with the Magrath and District Recreation Committee and Oldman River Regional Services Commission. This Inter-Municipal trail corridor commences in the southwest corner of Magrath and a portion was also completed just south of Highway 5. The next phase of the trail’s development is planned to extend east across Highway 62 along Town-owned right-of-ways.
