Cyclists and pedestrians will have to keep an eye out for construction along the McKee Street bike path in Ferguson Township starting Monday, according to a press release.
Tree damage and wear over the years have created the need for path maintenance, township public works Director David Modricker said.
“One area was called to our attention by the biking community,” Modricker said. “The roots of a large tree have heaved the path about 6 inches.”
The path will be routed around the tree, he said.
An area of the path along the flood plain also has been broken up by water damage, he said. Utility cuts in the path will be patched to be made more uniform.
Cyclists and pedestrians will still have access to the path during the initial repair work, the release said. “The path will remain open to pedestrians except on the day repaving is in progress.”
The project is expected to take a week to complete.
