Proposed Detour Plan: The Columbia Parks and Recreation Department is planning improvements to MKT Bridge #5 and #7 during the winter of 2017. If funding allows, Bridge #8 will also be replaced. Unfortunately, this will require a full closure for the trail section from the east side of the 3M Wetlands to just west of the Stadium Dr. underpass. The work is planned to begin November 27, 2017 and and is anticipated to be completed April 2018 (weather dependent).
Interested Parties Meeting: An interested parties meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 21,2017 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial, 800 Stadium Blvd., Columbia, MO, 65203. Proposed plans will be on display and park staff will be on hand to answer any questions.
Project Status: Design is underway and an interested parties meeting has been scheduled.
