ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - Portions of the Lake Wobegon Trail will be closed sporadically throughout the remainder of the summer for pavement repairs.
The trail is in need of some significant work, including crack and hole filling and the complete resurfacing of some segments. The trail will be closed in the areas where work is being done. If users see construction, they should use another portion of the trail. Trail users are asked to stay off freshly repaired surfaces.
Stearns County's Park Department received repeated complaints over the past several years about holes in the trail or the surface being too bumpy. These repairs will give a better surface quality and make the trail safer for users.
Maintenance will be done as contractors are available and as weather permits, today through August 31, 2013.
Temp: 45°F (7°C)
