Canal Embankment Update 4/8/19

April 8, 2019

Update from the Project Engineer:

Sites 32-34, between Redman Rd. and Smith St., will most likely be closed all week during working hours. There is a possibility that the work in Site 34 will come to a stop, by days end we will be at the wetland and can not proceed any further until notice is received rom the Army Corp of Engineers. After which, we will complete all work on this site ASAP.

Sites 37-38-39, between Fayette St. and Sweden Walker Rd., will continue to be closed around the clock until all work is substantially completed, hopefully before the 20th.

Work is progressing well through Site 37 (Fayette St. end) and if the weather cooperates we hope to be done early. Due to the volume of equipment on the trail and the general trail conditions themselves, a full time closure is still warranted at this time. We will continue to monitor conditions and open as soon as appropriate.
