Black River Trail to get a wholly paved surface

I've ridden the Carthage branch of the New York Central twice (12 , and blogged about it three times (3). The third time I opined that someone who gave his life for our daily pleasure ought to be honored just as much as someone who gave his life for our freedom. I didn't have easy access to that person's name then, but he is Richard R. Parker, a state employee, who died while operating an 8-ton roller on the trail. The Black River Trail will be completely blacktopped soon, according to an article in the Watertown Daily Times.
