The I-35E Cayuga construction project crews will be closing the Gateway State Trail at approximately 7 a.m. Friday, April 25. The trail needs to close for area excavation as part of the construction project, and is anticipated to remain closed through the duration of the project. The detour that was implemented last year will be posted again for this closure; trail users will be detoured to L’Orient Street, Maryland Avenue, Jackson Street and Cayuga Street.
Also, the Gateway Trail bridge spanning I-35E is tentatively planned to be removed over the weekend of May 16. The new Arlington Avenue bridge is currently scheduled to open in advance on May 11, with the new section of the trail in place and available for users.
