May 26, 2015 – A portion of the walking trail around Boulevard Lake is closed to the public effective May 26.

The section of trail is on the southwest side of the lake, near the intersection of Lyon Boulevard and Arundel Street. Cracks have developed in the trail’s asphalt surface. The trail was constructed last fall, and the consulting engineers who designed and oversaw the project are currently conducting an assessment.

The trail will remain closed until repairs are complete. The City is making the southbound lane of Lyon Boulevard available for pedestrian and bike traffic to allow for continued use of the trail system around the lake; the southbound lane of Lyon Boulevard will therefore be closed to vehicular traffic between Arundel Street and the Pavilion parking lot.

At this time, it is not known how long the trail and road will remain closed.

Residents are asked to use caution when travelling in the area, and obey all posted signage.
