WTHR reported last week that the Monon Trail north of 75th Street is planned to be closed for drainage work this coming October. The report indicates that the trail will be closed for 30-45 days while drainage work, repaving and widening of the trail can be performed. There is a slight chance that work could be pushed off until spring, when ridership is sparse, but the final plan is not set in stone.
Any interested parties can voice suggestions about possible detours or other ways to avoid the hardship that will be posed to cyclists by this project by attending a forum that will be hosted on Tuesday, September 18th at the nearby Indiana School for the Blind. The forum will be held from 5:30pm to 6:30pm.
