The City of Minneapolis has announced its plan for two closures of popular trails in the city for repairs to preserve trail surface and to relocate a rail line that crosses a trail. Closures with detours will include the Cedar Lake Trail and the Midtown Greenway Hiawatha Spur. The information below was sent out to Bicycle and Pedestrian Update Subscribers via e-mail.
