Miles of Capital City Trail to close for maintenance

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- A portion of the Capital City Trail will be closed for maintenance on Monday, July 9, according to Dane County Communications.

The 6.5 miles from Nob Hill Road to Glacier Valley Road near Fish Hatchery Road will be closed for approximately six weeks to replace the asphalt surface. Work will include improvements for drainage, ADA and wayfinding signage.

Cyclists and pedestrians will be required to use alternate routes of travel during construction. Alternative routes, online mapping tools, and additional information are available here.

This will be the first major upgrade to the trail since it was completed in 2000, and is part of a multi-year, multi-phase restoration project by Dane County Parks to improve the safety and ride of approximately 10 miles of the Capital City Trail.
