Bike path users: Due to safety concerns, the bike path will be closed for an undetermined period of time at two locations. The first location is between bridge 3 (the first bridge you come to after leaving Hopewell Culture NHP and traveling west toward Frankfort) and bridge 4. This area is suffering from extensive and active stream erosion and landslides. The second location is at Bridge 10 (where a large sycamore fell on the bridge) just west of Austin. There is no way to get through at these points, so please plan accordingly. The issues we are having with stream erosion are complex and extremely expensive, and the park district has been working with professional engineers and exploring solutions for several months. We're hoping to have some answers, detours and a final plan very soon. Thank you for your patience.
