Lakefront Trail Conditions January 19

The Trail is in very good condition (for winter) from Hollywood to Oak Street. There is a section of deep snow just north of Hollywood. I will ask the Park District to plow this section of Trail. Otherwise the trail is actually dry most of the way with a white coating of dried salt residue.

The area around Fullerton is, as usual, not is good shape. The dirt trail in this area is muddy on the south side and rutted throughout. Please be careful in this area.

No plowing at all between the Oak Street Bend and Ohio Street.

We are forecasted to have above freezing temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday. Snow will be melting along the Trail these days and more draining water will be on the Trail. Please be careful as temperatures again drop below freezing as there may be considerably more ice on the Trail at that point.
