Sand bag removal will close Capital City Trail 2 weeks, officials say

MADISON, Wis. - The Capital City Trail at Monona Terrace will be closed for two weeks as crews work to remove the big bags of sand on the trail, according to alder Mike Verveer’s blog.

The trail will be closed starting at 9 a.m., and trail users will have to walk their bikes around the work zone, officials said.

Heavy equipment will be lifting the filled bags of sand onto trailers pulled by large trucks, according to the blog post. The filled bags will be reused to construct a temporary berm required for another city project.

Work will be completed in two phases – the south end will be completed first, and then the north end, officials said. City crews expect the work to take two weeks to complete.
