Steamboat Park Trail Project Comes In Under Budget

A project, paid for with grant money, is actually costing the City of Pierre less than first thought. City Park and Recreation Director Tom Farnsworth presented a change order to the Pierre City Commission for consideration Tuesday night…

Farnsworth says it’s been an efficient project…

Farnsworth says just because the concrete is laid and the project is nearly 100-percent complete the section of trail replaced is still technically not open to the public yet…

Farnsworth has doubts the finish work will be completed in time for Oahe Days…

Still on the agenda for city crews is the installation of benches in bump out areas along the path and a drinking water fountains.
