City of Eau Claire buys land for new trail

Eau Claire (WQOW) -  The Eau Claire City Council votes to buy land, paving the way for a new multi-use trail.

It's a mile-long stretch of land that used to be a railroad, stretching from Roosevelt Elementary School to the high bridge over the Chippewa River. It would connect the northwest side of Eau Claire to downtown once the high bridge is re-decked for the trail.  The city received a grant to cover half of the $55,000 project.   The trail could open this summer.
