Trail signs warn of after-dark use
New signs on Chieftain Trail warn users they are walking on the trail at their own risk after dark.
Kathy Bard, city clerk, said the existing lighting on the trail did not meet KDOT requirements, so signs had to be posted letting people know the trail wasn't going to be properly lighted.
"In order to participate in the project, we have to say it's not a nighttime trail," Bard said. "There is some lighting down Main Street, but it's just not bright enough."
KDOT paid for 80 percent of the total cost of the trail. The city picked up the remainder.
