Temporary tunnel used to shield trail users

Towarnicki said work crews are chipping away at the deck of the bridge overhead to expose the metal, treat it and reseal it. He estimated the six-month project will be completed in September. (Contributed photo)

A tunnel on a portion of the Dick & Willie Passage rail trail in Martinsville is in place because of the work being done on the bridge above it, according to City Manager Leon Towarnicki.

The tunnel, situated on a portion of the trail near Sovah-Martinsville and Martinsville High School on Commonwealth Boulevard, is intended to keep debris from damaging the trail or those using it.
