Heavin trail closed, undergoing construction today

SAN BENITO — Starting today, a portion of Heavin Resaca Trail will be closed to walkers and runners.

In an effort to keep the city beautiful, city officials plan to upgrade the entire trail this year, making it bigger and better for the community.

“The city will be widening the trail from eight to 10 feet, and make other needed repairs in overlaying the existing asphalt with a new layer,” said Sandee Alvarez, director of community grants and programs.

The stretch of trail closing today is about one block.

It will run from near Zaragosa Street to the Frontage Road near Highway 77-83, said Public Works Director Adan Gonzalez.
