Tree-trimming projects to briefly close portions of Fox River Trail and Illinois Prairie Path
Three tree-trimming projects will prompt intermittent closures of portions of the Fox River Trail in South Elgin and St. Charles, and the Illinois Prairie Path in South Elgin, through May 18.
The first project is along the Fox River Trail in South Elgin from Raymond Street south to Robertson Road.
The second project is along the Fox River Trail in the Valley View area of St. Charles, from Red Gate Road south to behind the Q Center.
The third project is along the Elgin Branch of the Illinois Prairie Path, from Raymond Street south to Stearns Road.
For each project, ComEd contractor Asplundh will remove any trees that are interfering with power lines, and trim back others that are close to utility lines.
The Forest Preserve District of Kane County asks trail users to be mindful of the projects, heavy machinery being used, and of the possibility of intermittent trail closures during the time frames indicated. Signs for the projects will be displayed at both ends of projects to alert trail users.
