Short reroutes of Green Circle completed, others planned

Metro Wire Staff

The north end portion of the River Pines section of the Green Circle Trail has been rerouted off a city street near the Stevens Point water and sewage facilities.

With the help of the Stevens Point Water and Parks, Recreation and Forestry Departments, a short reroute takes the trail off Bliss Ave. Instead, it follows Wood St. to Mason St., then west near the Stevens Point Dog Park where it meets the existing River Pines Trail. Parking is available at the west end of Mason St.

This new portion connects the River Pines segment with the Schrader Connection, creating a natural five-mile loop. It enhances wayfinding on these city streets from downtown to the granite trail, eliminating 0.4 miles of trail on blacktop.

Regarding other sections of the Green Circle:

The Moses Creek Trail from Wilshire Drive to Yulga Park will be closed Nov. 20-28 for the nine-day gun deer hunting season. For your safety and to respect the rights of adjacent landowners who make the Green Circle possible, please stay off this section until Nov. 29.

Work will begin as soon as Monday, Nov. 22, on clearing a path up to 30 feet wide for a fence that will be installed around the Stevens Point Municipal Airport.

Some fencing will be near the Plover River Trail segment, and portions of the trail near the Izaak Walton League property will be rerouted to accommodate fence construction.

The work affects the trail between East Maria Drive and Highway 66. The trail section will be closed for up to two weeks.
