— Madison County Transit is reminding the public that the Foster Heritage Trail is closed for reconstruction.

The Ronald J. Foster Heritage Trail is off limits from West Main Street to the Silver Creek Bridge. Alternate trail routes through Glen Carbon are available along the Nickel Plate Trail and Goshen Trail.

The Foster trail will be repaved, with critical repairs to 10 bridges and two tunnels, according to Mark Steyer, transit director of engineering.

All residents are reminded that entering the construction site for any reason is prohibited for their own safety. Construction is expected to be complete by fall 2014.
