 The City of Great Bend announced Thursday the temporary closure of a section of the Great Bend hike and bike trail. The section of trail between Washington and 10th Street on top of the flood control levy will be closed for repairs from Monday, Feb. 5, to Monday, Feb. 19. 

Venture Corporation will be doing the maintenance and dates will be weather permitting and efforts will be made to open the trail back up as soon as possible.

During the trail closure, interested parties can utilize the Be Well Barton County bike routes. A map can be found at bartoncounty.org. 

“Several biking groups and interested individuals have been requesting such repairs,” said City Attorney Bob Suelter. “The hike and bike path is an important element in our community to help provide safe and clear physical activities opportunities.”
