It's CRITICAL that all visitors stay out of construction areas. That includes vehicles, boats, bikes, walkers/runners, anglers, equestrian, hot air balloons, etc. If you come across an area closed with signs or obstacles, stay out. Your safety is paramount and we've had a serious injury as a result of a person not heeding the closures.
