MADISON (WKOW) -- The Capital City Path will be closed beginning Wednesday so contractors for the City of Madison can begin a project to stabilize the drainage ditch on the path from Starkweather Creek to Walter Street.
The project requires the path to be closed to all bicycle and pedestrian traffic from Sugar Avenue to Walter Street.
City officials say there will be signs for a bicycle detour beginning at Fair Oaks Avenue and continuing on Ivy Street, the path in OB Sherry PArk, Starkweather Drive and Hargrove Street to Walter Street.
There will be two phases to the project. The initial closure beginning on Wednesday will continue through the winter to March 1, 2013.
The path will be reopened from March 1 to May 1 under interim conditions. Officials say those conditions will likely include reduced speeds and extra caution.
The final widening and re-paving of the path will begin around May 1, and will require the path to be closed again to all users for approximately three weeks.
