WAYNE – The recent flood waters in Logan Creek has caused considerable damage to a portion of the walking trail in Wayne as well as the creek bank being deemed unsafe.
UPDATE: The portion of the walking trail that was closed off has now collapsed into the creek. City of Wayne officials are asking the public to stay away from the area as the banks are unstable.
According to a release from the Wayne Police Department Friday late afternoon, even though the water levels have dropped the after effects of erosion from the swift moving water has undermined the integrity of the trail itself.
Barricades were placed on the trail from Henry Victor Park trailhead on South Main Street up to South Nebraska Street near Roosevelt Park to warn of the danger. However, those barriers were being ignored and now fencing will be installed to completely close off the damaged area under the South Main Street bridge until the necessary repairs to stabilize the situation can be completed.
Pedestrians should not enter the fenced work zone and also ensure that children are not in the area unattended or unsupervised.
Failure to comply with the posted notices could result in a citation or court appearance.
To contact the non-emergency number for the Wayne Police Department call 402-375-2626, the City Hall at 402-375-1733 or for emergencies, 911.
