Antelope Valley Trail Open

The removal of sediment from the Antelope Creek floodway, between Vine and "X" Streets has been completed. The planned three-week project was completed in about a week, thanks to Gana Trucking and Excavating, of Martell, being able to dedicate extra equipment to the project. The creek-side trail has been re-opened.
