Courtney Campbell Causeway trail remains closed for cleanup

The Courtney Campbell Causeway trail in Clearwater remained closed today as crews worked to clean up storm debris from Hurricane Hermine, city officials said.

Parks and recreation workers were clearing the trail, a paved path that runs along the southern side of the Courtney Campbell Causeway from the Veterans Expressway in Tampa to Bayshore Boulevard in Clearwater. They hoped to have the trail open again by Wednesday afternoon, a news release said.

The city decided to close the trail for the safety of the public and asked people to stay off the trail until it is cleaned and safe for use.

The 9.5-mile trail, which includes two bridges, is a popular spot for its scenic views. The trail is normally open from sunrise to sunset.
