Parts of the MKT Trail and the Hinkson Creek/MU Recreation Trail will each close for one day next week, according to a news release from the Columbia Parks and Recreation Department.

The section of the MKT Trail trail between Stadium Boulevard and the Stadium/Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial trailhead, near the 7.5 mile marker, will be closed Tuesday. Detour routes are available.

The Hinkson Creek/MU Recreation Trail will close Thursday on the trail section between the Greenbriar connector and the MKT Trail, near the 6.75 mile marker.

If weather doesn’t permit, the repairs would be postponed to next week. Boone Construction is the contractor on the project.
