Due to electrical work, parts of Paradise Path will be closed starting July 16 through the 20.
Park officials say the trail along Berman Creekside Park and Styner Avenue will be closed while Avista Utilities upgrades poles and wires connected to the city’s substation.
This upgrade is part of the company’s plan to replace 22 miles of electric transmission lines between the substation to Lewiston. They’re replacing old wooden poles with steel poles with fiber optic connections that will require less maintenance in the future.
The new transmission lines will also have a higher clearance area for safety.
