After months of planning and construction, Bonney Lake’s Safe Routes to School Trail — which includes the first mile of the Fennel Creek Trail — has been completed. Mayor Neil Johnson announced a ribbon cutting ceremony in celebration of the trail link.

The $800,000 Fennel Creek Trail link is mostly funded by a grant from the Washington State Department of Transportation. The link provides students a safe route for walking and biking to schools including Victor Falls Elementary, Mountain View Middle School and Bonney Lake High School. Components of the project include a paved trail, boardwalk and bridge.

The ceremony will be open to the public and take place at 1 p.m. Oct. 26 at the Willow Brook Storm Pond, located near 11110 185th Avenue East.
