    A portion of the Haliburton County Rail Trail will be closed as of June 6 due to Sedgwick Bridge construction.

    Motorists will be directed through the nearby rail trail during the anticipated three-week construction period.  

    The detour will follow the Haliburton County Rail Trail from Gelert Road to Francis Road and back on to Sedgwick Road.

    Since motorists will be traveling the trail, it will be closed to all pedestrians, cyclists and ATV riders. 

    In a June 6 media release, Minden Hills urged motorists in the area to watch for detour signs and expect construction vehicles to be present.
