A portion of the Cedar Valley Nature Trail was closed from March through August for a paving project by the Linn County Conservation Department.  Before the trail opened to the public, the newly paved surface started cracking.  The trail was opened to the public, with notice that the trail would be closed again in order to repair the cracks.

As of Monday, October 15th, the Cedar Valley Nature Trail is closed again to repair the cracking from the paving project.  The effected trail area is from Lafayette Rd to Schultz Rd (near Center Point).  The expected closure is one week.
