Knobley Tunnel remains closed

June 1st, 2019 by WCBC Radio

The Mineral Tribune reports as the summer hiking and biking season gets into full swing, Carpendale’s Knobley Tunnel Trail remains closed for repairs. The tunnel was closed in mid-April, in concern for safety, as it was discovered that a roof timber was falling. Since that time the tunnel was inspected and officials are awaiting the final report to know the extent of the damage.  Carpendale mayor Casey Lambert noted that he has been working on possible funding sources including discussions with Del. Gary Howell, the Region VIII Planning and Development Council and tourism funding.  The tunnel trail is part of an even bigger project as officials are looking to extend the project to Ridgeley and over to Cumberland to link with the C&O Canal trail.
