REPAIR WORK: Closure On Neal Smith Trail

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

A three-mile stretch of the Neal Smith biking and hiking trail is closed for repairs.

The trail is closed from the Sycamore access to Morningstar Drive in Polk County. Part of the trail has severe stream bank erosion, undercutting the asphalt path.

The old trail will be removed and recycled as a base for a new trail. Crews will stabilize the eroding stream bank.

Because of the heavy equipment, you should avoid this section of the Neal Smith Trail.

Repairs should be done in late October.
