With work on and off over the next 1-2 years for the Rapids Parkway Extension, it is useful to know whether the Howard Watson Trail in that area is open or closed before you head out for a walk or ride.
FYI, you can find out status of the trail on the following website. All status changes are posted there.

As you'll see, on May 1, the Howard Watson trail was re-opened between Sandpiper and Exmouth. The construction work planned for that area is on hold due to delays in getting the pipe they need.
