Those using the Litton Trail on the Sierra College Nevada County campus may face some interruptions in their walking due to construction work that starts today on the new Public Safety Training Center.

The trail won’t be closed, though people using the path might be stopped for several minutes during the logging and earth-moving operations, a college press release said.

The construction project is expected to take five months to complete. Signs will be posted at all entrances to the trail.
