Rend Lake Bike Trail to remain closed during shoreline project

REND LAKE — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Rend Lake says the Rend Lake Bike Trail, located between the Spillway Recreation Area and the South Marcum Day Use Area, closed Wednesday and will be closed through Nov. 17.

This closure will allow for the delivery of rock and equipment to protect the shoreline at the Adena water intake structure located adjacent to the South Marcum Boat Ramp. For safety reasons, the bike trail will remain closed until the work is complete in this section.

Officials say notice will be given when the area reopens.
