A section of a well-known trail in Ladysmith will be closed for a few days.
The Town of Ladysmith says a portion of the Heart Lake Loop Trail near Chicken Ladder Water Intake Access Road is closed until Sept. 2 for construction.
According to the municipality, a portion of the trail must be closed during construction because there is not enough room to create a safe alternate route or detour around the work site.
The construction work involves the removal and replacement of a pair of culverts on the Chicken Ladder Water Intake Access Road and construction must be completed within the fish window, which ends Sept. 15.
The Town of Ladysmith says the area has been cordoned off and is urging the public to “respect the closure for your own safety.”
