COLUMBIA — Construction will close the tunnel along the MKT Nature and Fitness Trail under Stadium Boulevard until the end of April.
The work will cost about $140,000 and take about five weeks to complete, Public Works Department spokeswoman Jill Stedem said.
The tunnel is located at Stadium Boulevard near the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial at Battle Garden.
The project by Grun-D Construction of Tipton is funded by federal GetAbout Columbia funds for non-motorized transportation, according to a news release from the Public Works Department.
Drivers on Stadium Boulevard are encouraged to watch for pedestrians crossing the street due to the tunnel's closure, according to the news release.
