VAIL – Work on the incoming Avon kayak and whitewater park is still going on behind the scenes, but residents can expect action down by the river starting in September. Town Engineer Norm Wood has been in talks with Vail Resorts to get temporary and permanent easements along the river, which will allow the public more access to the park. The easements should be nailed down by early August, after which the town will start accepting bids from construction companies.Construction should begin in September and be completed by the winter, but thge park wouldn’t be open until summer 2007.
