A contractor will be starting repair work on the Cedar Valley Nature Trail on Tuesday, August 13. The repairs will require temporary closures of the trail from Robins Road to County Home Road. Current plans are to start work on Tuesday, August 13 and complete repairs by Friday, August 16. The contractor will attempt to reopen the trail segments as work is completed. There is a possibility that the contractor be able to open the trail some evenings while work is in progress, but opening will depend on getting the trail in a safe condition for public use. Trail users should plan on this section of the trail being closed most of next week. Access to the trail north from the County Home Road parking area will remain available.
The trail will be closed at the Interstate 380 underpass north of Center Point for approximately two months starting Monday, August 19. Linn County Conservation crews will be rebuilding a trail crossing at this location which will also require the trail surface to be reconstructed in this location. We will reopen the trail as soon as possible, but it appears likely the trail will remain closed through September.
Later in the month a sealant will be applied to various segments of the trail that will also require temporary closures until the sealant is dry. Currently this work is scheduled for Wednesday, August 28 and Thursday, August 29. We will update you if these dates change.
