The North Fork of the Cedar Lake Trail (shown as the red line) has been closed starting Jan 7th to begin construction on the first phase of flood control at the Shaver Road NE bridge, over McLoud Run (aka Cold Stream). This segment will be closed for three years during project construction. A detour (shown as the green line) on 10th St. NE will be in place during construction.
