Feds OK $4.4M to repair flooded trail

........................................................................................................................................................................................

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The federal government is providing $4.4 million in emergency funding for repairs to the Catwalk Trail, a scenic streamside walkway in the Gila National Forest in southwestern New Mexico.

Democratic Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich say the funding is coming from the Federal Highway Administration.

The trail was damaged by flooding along Whitewater Creek in September.

The senators say the federal funding will reimburse the Forest Service for emergency repairs and debris removal already done and pay for repairs and other work to trails, a bridge and viewing platforms. The work is expected to be completed by the summer of 2015.
