Some work underway in Emerald Park in North Little Rock, coming not long after controversy arose over sale of the former quarry below for apartment development, engendered some nervousness among blog readers. Perhaps because of the concern, the city issued the photo of the work above and this statement:

October 8, 2012 (North Little Rock)— The center section of Emerald Park has been temporarily closed for at least 2-3 months (depending on weather) in order to construct the new Highland Trail, which will connect the section of pavement to the west.

The new paved trail (marked in light blue on map below) will be called the Highland Trail and the unpaved portion (marked in magenta pink)will remain known as the Emerald Park Trail. Once completed, the Highland Trail will be asphalt paved and ADA compliant. The old trail will remain known as the Emerald Park Trail, and will be available for off-road bicycles and hikers.
