Here’s to safety

Dear Editor:Here is a big thank-you to the RFTA board and staff for their ongoing work on the Rio Grande Trail and their commitment to SAFELY connect this valley from one end to the other with a continuous trail on the Rio Grande right of way. The study and purchase of this corridor was approximately nine years and eight and a half million dollars in the making and we trail users are happy we will soon (by 2010) be gliding, walking and cycling from Glenwood Springs to Aspen without vehicles nipping at our heels.Jacque WhitsittchairpersonMidValley Trails Committee of Eagle County
