Samers Bay Breakwall Project

Location: Terrell Island Omro, WI 54963

Modified Trail Opening due to Construction/Safety Concerns - Effective May 4, 2021

The "Kachur Trail" will be open from Sunrise to 1 Hour before Sunset.

Why was the trail closed?

Samers Bay Breakwall Project - To help improve water quality, restore habitat and create substantial water exchange to improve the water quality within Terrell Island. 

How will this be done?

By removing 2,200 feet of the existing breakwall and removing rock from around 5 islands inside Terrell Island to build the new breakwall to prevent erosion. 

Why is only part of the trail opening?

Safety concern with construction from the breakwall project.

When is this project expected to be completed?

Anticipated project end date is April 2022. 

Will there be bridges to connect the two trails?

There will not be bridges to connect the trails. The expense of the bridges is a big factor, along with maintenance. 

Please remember to pick up after your dog, keep them leashed and respect the environment.
