Notice of Temporary Ski Trail Closure for Construction Activity
Please note that one of the cross-country ski trails located behind the Stadium Facility will be closed due to construction activity (see attached map for exact location).
It is currently anticipated that the ski trail will be closed from Monday, November 12 to Friday, December 14, 2018. Inclement weather may affect this schedule.
We request that everyone respect and obey all posted construction signage as well as directions from the workers on the affected trail.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you in advance for your cooperation. For any questions please contact email@example.com or extension 1500.
The Gully and Shed Loops will be closed due to construction as early as Monday, November 12, 2018.
See message below from LU. Attached is the map of the affected trails.
“Please be advised that a construction project is underway for one of the campus ski trails.
The project scope entails the installation of new high-efficiency (LED) lighting along the trail, as identified in the attached pdf (see photo below).
Construction activity may begin as soon as next week, and will involve machinery and workers present in the marked trail.
As a result, the affected trail will be closed for the duration of the project.
A site visit with the contractor has been scheduled, and further details with respect to project schedule will be discussed and clarified.
A campus-wide email message is being prepared in both languages and will be circulated in the near future.
In the meantime, please share this preliminary information with your School Board and City contacts so that they are aware of the trail closure.
If I have missed anyone in the distribution list, please share with them also.”
