The trail was slushy this Monday morning with lots of salt melting the weekend snow. The water was very rough this weekend and water splashed up and over the trail is several locations. The Trail was closed this morning at North Ave (going south) by the Park District due to dangerous conditions from ice on the Trail. The North Avenue underpass was open to exit the Trail at this point.
Ice was also present south of Fullerton both on the Trail and, in a few locations, the dirt running path to the west of the Trail. Trail users were riding on the dirt to the east of the running path to avoid the ice.
