A sanitary sewer project at about 6th and Calvert streets will temporarily close portions of the Salt Creek Levee Trail and the Jamaica North Trail starting Monday, April 11. The work is expected to take until mid-May.
Signs have been posted to notify trail users at major access points ahead of the closure. The suggested detour routes are as follows:
Also starting next week are projects to add to three trails. The MoPac Trail will have a new connection to 52nd Street, and the Rock Island Trail will have a new connection at Arlington Avenue. Both trails will remain open. The Boosalis Trail will have a new connection at Dunn Avenue. This work will require the closure of the trail from 20th to 27th streets for about four days. The suggested detour is Kessler Blvd., just north of Highway 2. These three projects were identified as priority neighborhood trail connections in the 2040 Bicycle and Pedestrian Capital Plan.
