Tree-Trimming, Utility Projects May Briefly Close Parts of Elgin Prairie Path, Fox River Trail
Three Forest Preserve District of Kane County tree-trimming projects may prompt intermittent closures of sections of the Elgin Prairie Path and the Fox River Trail.
From Jan. 30 through Feb. 6, work is being done along the Elgin Prairie Path, just north of IL Route 25. ComEd will be working on repairing overhead power lines and utility poles.
From Feb. 1 through March 1, work will be done along the Elgin Prairie Path, from IL Route 25 to Raymond Street. The contractor will be trimming trees under the power lines and removing dead trees that threaten to fall on the lines.
Lastly, from Feb. 9 through March 9, ComEd will be working on overhead power lines and utility poles. This work will be done along the Fox River Trail, between Stearns Road and the Jon Duerr Forest Preserve.
The Forest Preserve District asks trail users to be mindful of the projects, heavy machinery being used, and of the possibility of intermittent trail closures during the time frames indicated. Signs on both ends of the project will alert trail users to each project.
