The good news is, there won’t be any additional trail closures or detours but you are going to have to keep an eye out for maintenance crews and trucks. The goal? Extending the longevity of the trail surfaces.
We received the following update from the City:
We will be placing advanced warning for Bicycle Trail Maintenance on all entrances of the Cedar Lake Trail and the Greenway Phase 1 starting on Friday 8/5. The signs will read “Bicycle Trail Maint. Beginning August 15”. On Monday the 15th, the signs will read “Bicycle Trail Maint. Ahead”. We are sealing the joints on the Greenway just as we did a few years ago. We have some asphalt repairs on Cedar Lake Trail followed by joint sealing. At this time we are not quite sure of the duration, but it will be at least 10 days. The Greenway should go pretty quick as we are just touching up.
Thanks to the Shaun Murphy of the City of Minneapolis Department of Public Works for keeping us informed.
