|Portion of Mill Creek Streamway Park to be closed beginning Nov. 15 for wastewater project|
The trail will be closed between mile 1.5 and 2 immediately south of the Wilder Drive Access Point at 19425 Wilder Drive, Shawnee. Officials have said this section of trail could be closed for two weeks or more for an Interim Outfall Project being completed for the wastewater department by BRB Contractors or Topeka.
From the south, trail users will encounter several signs warning of the upcoming closure beginning just north of the Barker Road Access Point at 5946 Barker Road, Shawnee, until the trail is barricaded completely at the base of a bridge just east of the Mid-America West Sports Complex.
Trail users can also access the trail from Shawnee's Stump Park and the trail from the Wilder Drive access point north to Nelson Island will remain open, as will all other areas of the Gary L. Haller trail.
