The Saline County Commission is preparing to install some markers on certain roadways. Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott speak with Southern Commissioner Monte Fenner:
“They wanted us to put signage on the Santa Fe Trail throughout Saline County,” said Fenner, “And we agreed to do that. They furnish the signs, all we have to do is put these signs up. And it will be a driving trail, along the old Santa Fe Trail, with signage showing where these markers and so forth are.”
24 markers will be put in throughout the County.
“It will basically start at Arrow Rock, and then of course follow the trail throughout Saline County. It will go north of Marshall. There will be signage in the city of Malta Bend, and also the last signage will be in the city of Grand Pass. So clear across the county from Arrow Rock to Grand Pass.”
The trail began in New Franklin, Missouri. These markers will be placed along the entire route, from Howard County, Mo. to Santa Fe, New Mexico.
