The GAP website and a handwritten sign along trail report the following scheduled trail closure:

"GAP to Close for Five-Week Construction Near Hays’ Eagle Viewing Area (GAP Mile 142) Fully Obstructed: The GAP will be closed 24/7 for five weeks starting October 31 for reconstruction. There is no detour."

The construction work is for sewer work to alleviate the ponding that occurs on the trail at that location after heavy rains. This is a long-awaited improvement that will increase safety especially in the winter when ice forms in that area.

Thanks to the Friends of the Riverfront who have made this improvement possible.
