Recent rain in the area has forced the closure of two portions of Battle Creek’s Linear Park.

The City announced Tuesday that barricades are in place along the path under the West Michigan Avenue Bridge in downtown and under the bridge on East Emmett near Bailey Park. The abundance of rain has lifted the level of the Battle Creek River enough to flood the path.

The two areas will remain blocked off until the water fully recedes.

Below are the locations of the Linear Path closures.
