Trail Closure for Tower Removal

Trail Closures at Northwood Park for Tower Removal
Posted on 08/18/2020
Last week, an assumed lightning strike toppled one of the radio towers located in the swamp between Winnetka and Boone avenues, just north of 36th Avenue North.

Contractors for American Tower Corporation will be on-site beginning on Wednesday, Aug. 19 to remove the tower. Its anticipated removal will take up to three days to complete.

The west and east trailheads at Northwood Park between Boone and Winnetka avenues will be closed for the duration of the removal for the safety of residents and work crews. Trails will reopen as soon as the work is complete.
