The Jordan River ate under the Parkway path
During my run this morning, I came upon a stretch of path that is next to the edge of the river bank. The bank was marked off with yellow tape to keep people from getting close to the edge. When I got to the end of the tape, I looked back and could see that the water had eroded under the path, and the asphalt was sticking out over the water. If a person walked on that portion of the path, they could cause the path to crumble, and they would fall 2 or 3 feet into the water. I don't know how the city of Riverton will fix the path. My guess is that they will curve the path away from the bank.
