Shunga Trail reopened at Gage Blvd.

TOPEKA, KAN. – The Shunga Trail is now open at the Gage Blvd. underpass. The trail had been closed since March 7 while the underpass was widened to create a better line of sight from the Felker Park side to the Crestview Park side. The curve on the Felker side of the trail was also softened. Lighting has also been improved in the underpass beneath Gage Blvd. The improvements were made to enhance safety.
