Fox River Trail at Logan Avenue in Elgin is set to be temporarily closed down for repairs beginning June 17.
Evans and Son Blacktop Inc. will be repairing drainage structures and rebuilding a culvert under the trail. The trail, which is south of Route 90 and north of Slade Avenue, will be cut open during construction, with trucks on the trail for two days as work is completed.
The repairs will begin Monday, June 17, and Tuesday, June 18, with construction continuing all week. For the first two days of construction the trail will be impassable.
Once the work is completed, there will be final restorations conducted at the site and traffic may pass through. It is suggested that those who use the trails exercise caution during this time for a period of one week as clean up is finished.
The project was initiated due to failure of the old drainage structure. The new repairs will benefit the trail by preventing erosional washouts on both sides and eliminating mud and debris on the trail that are caused by heavy rainfall.
