Work on three trail bridges is closing parts of the MoPac East Trail into early March. The trail is maintained by the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District.
Pilings and abutments on the bridges will be repaired and barricades will be erected in the vicinity of work while it is being done. Theisen Construction, of Norfolk, NE, began work this week east of Walton, between 120th and 134th streets. Work will move to two bridges northeast of Elmwood, between Havelock Avenue and 310th Street sometime late next week.
The Cassgram reports NRD Resources Coordinator Dan Schulz said, “The work is being done during cold weather to minimize inconvenience to trail users.”
The progress of the work and resulting trail closings will be continually updated on the NRD website, lpsnrd.org.
