Crews were preparing early this week to pour concrete for a new sidewalk and bike path along Highway 20 on the south end of Twisp.

The project began earlier this summer with replacement of 50-year-old water mains between Marble Street and Airport Road prior to sidewalk construction. The water line replacement was funded through a Rural Development low-interest loan obtained by Twisp from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The sidewalk project received funding through the Federal Highway Administration and the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board. Completion is expected in mid-September.
