Princeton’s upgraded ZigZag Trail could include steel stairs straight up hill

Princeton's new ZigZag Trail is slated to cost $225,000 and will be more elaborate than before.

Construction of Princeton’s new upgraded ZigZag Trail is slated to cost $225,000, and could include steel stairs that go straight up the hill in addition to regular zigzagging stairs.

The new ZigZag Trail will replace the out-of-commission trail that was destroyed by a run-away truck two years ago.

Around $17,000 of ICBC money, in addition to provincial money awarded and Gas Tax funding will make the trail much more elaborate than the old one.

No local taxes, such as property taxes, will be used, said chief administrative officer Patrick Robins.

The new trail will likely have concrete stairs and places for people to rest on their way up.

Companies will be able to bid on the project starting May 6.
