Flooding in Eau Claire has resulted in the closing of trails and delaying city construction.

City officials say work on the Haymarket Plaza and Grand Avenue Pedestrian Bridge has come to a halt as weekend storms have the waters of the Chippewa River quickly rising. Parks and trails have been inundated by flooding, causing some to be closed to visitors. Once the water recedes, work will also continue on a wall between the river and plaza to prevent future flooding.
