What is a Silt Fence*…

…and why are they popping up in Santa Claus?

Construction is underway on the CLV-Yellig Trail.

Construction is planned to start in earnest tomorrow (7/31/2017). Expect some minor traffic delays over the next few months as construction on this trail is scheduled to be completed by October.

You may also have noticed there are a great deal of elevation changes, Some will be filled in, others will follow the natural contour.
