A portion of the Mariners Trail, between the Little Manitowoc River bridge and approximately Reed Avenue, will be closed for trail reconstruction. Wherever possible, the trail is also being widened from 8’ to 10’. Construction is expected to begin Monday, May 8th and be completed by Friday, June 2nd. In advance of the trail reconstruction, the Forestry Division will be closing the area on Thursday, May 4th and Friday, May 5th to remove approximately 15 ash trees and a strip of woody vegetation on the north end of the construction area, as well as to trim several trees on the south end. The ash trees are being removed in advance of the reconstruction in order to lessen the risk of damage to the newly paved trail and grading.
