Road and trail closures at Jackson Rd & Mason RR trail

Jackson Road UNDER the railroad trestle WILL BE CLOSED DURING WORK HOURS (8:00 AM – 4:00 PM) while the steel girders are cleaned and repainted. Work could start as early as Monday, June 3, depending on weather; regular updates will be be made here as scheduling gets more precise. About 5 days of good weather will be required for the bridge painting phase of the project.

The Mason RR Trail section which crosses over Jackson Road IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. The trestle has been blocked off and its guard rails removed by volunteers from MANE. The ties were removed May 4 by a volunteer crew from the snow-mobile club. The final step will be installation of a a new 10″ thick pressure treated deck. Completion is hoped for by the end of June, weather permitting.

Funding is provided through a grant.
