REPAIR, REPLACEMENT WORK PLANNED FOR CITY TRAILS

Lincoln Parks and Recreation officials today announced repair plans for two City trails that were closed due to recent heavy rains.

Repair work on the Boosalis Trail at 48th Street and Highway 2 is beginning next week. The trail has been closed due to heavy rains that have undermined the trail, creating a safety hazard. The renovation will provide extra support for the trail during future high-water conditions. The work is expected to be completed later this summer.

The Billy Wolff Trail has been closed just east of 27th Street and Capitol Parkway. The trail has been closed due to heavy rains and the high-water in Antelope Creek that has washed away the gabion baskets that supported the trail. Plans are underway for designing the work needed to replace the gabion baskets and trail, however an expected repair and completion date have not been set at this time.

Trail users are asked to use the alternate routes that are available for both sections of trail until the repairs have been made.

More information on the City trails system is available on the City Web site at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: trails).
