    ST. JOHNSBURY ó Construction is to start this summer on a 93-mile-long rail trail from St. Johnsbury to Swanton.

    The Vermont Association of Snow Travelers leases the defunct rail line from the state. Itís seeking bids for two prefabricated truss bridges along a 15-mile section from St. Johnsbury and West Danville.

    The Caledonian Record reported that itís not clear when the entire Lamoille Valley Rail trail will be finished. The association is funding the effort in part with a $5.4 million grant that requires a 20 percent cash match.

    The trail would be open to snowmobiling, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, biking, and other uses.
