Electric Line Work to Close Section of Cedar Lake Trail January 6

Jan 02, 2014

Cedar Rapids, Iowa – Jan. 2, 2014 – The paved portion of the trail to the west of Cedar Lake in downtown Cedar Rapids will be closed Jan. 6 through Feb. 7 to allow ITC Midwest LLC (ITC) to perform maintenance on an electric transmission line that runs along the trail.

Crews will need to close the trail in order to perform maintenance on the line, including installing new wire – called conductor – on the structures along the trail. The maintenance is part of ITC’s efforts to ensure the regional electric transmission system operates reliably and meets customers’ energy needs.

ITC estimates the work will require the trail to be closed through Feb. 7, 2014, but the trail will be opened before then if the work can be completed prior to that time.
