Beginning Monday, December 5, the Antelope Valley Trail will be closed for three weeks between Vine and "X" streets while sediment is removed from Antelope Creek. The trail is tentatively scheduled to reopen December 23.
The suggested detour is to exit the trail south of Vine Street, cross to the north side, proceed east to N. 22nd Street, north to "Y" Street and then west back to the where the trail intersects with N. 17th Street. The University of Nebraska Lincoln campus can be accessed by using the Vine or "X" Street sidewalks or trails west into campus.
