The Bob Jones Bike Trail in San Luis Obispo will be closed for about eight weeks starting Monday, Jan. 10, so the city can make safety improvements.
City officials say a significant portion of the trail, from Prado Road to Los Osos Valley Road, will be an active construction site and will be closed to the public.
A temporary fence and gate will be put up to secure the construction site.
Crews will reportedly be working to reduce fire hazards and replace fencing near steep drop-offs along the trail. The current split-rail wood fencing will be replaced with heavy timber fencing.
The project is expected to be completed in March.
Homeless individuals who were living along the trail were forced to move out of the area Friday by city officials.
