BDE MAKA SKA PAVILION

Starting Monday, April 3, exterior work resumed with utility connections, stormwater management installation and preparing the site for concrete flatwork. The pedestrian trail around the construction site will temporarily close to safely accommodate some of this work. All trail traffic will be combined onto the bike trail during the pedestrian trail closure. Bikers must yield to pedestrians in this area. The new Bde Maka Ska pavilion area is on track to open this summer.
