  • Beginning Monday, August 14, a three-block section of the Helen Boosalis Trail along Highway 2 will be closed for renovation. The project will replace the existing eight-foot wide asphalt trail with a 10-foot wide concrete trail from Brower Road to 17th and Burnham streets. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of September. The recommended detour is to exit the trail north at South 20th Street, then turn west onto Burnham Street.
