Watch for Cracks on Murdock Trail

The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department is urging users of the Murdock Trail to use extreme caution between 56th and 84th streets due to severe cracking caused by the drought. Natural Resource Manager Terry Genrich said it is difficult to close the section of trail because it has multiple access points.

Genrich said the City has been monitoring the condition of the Murdock Trail as well as the Salt Valley Levee and Jamaica North trails. All three are constructed from limestone shavings. He said the Salt Valley Levee and Jamaica North trails remain in good condition, but trail users should we aware that cracking is a possibility under dry conditions.
