NORMAL, Ill. -- The Normal Fire Department announced Tuesday that training will close Virginia Avenue between Linden Street and Broadway Street on June 12, 13, and 17, between approximately 5:00pm and 10:00pm each evening.

Normal Fire Department will be conducting night training which will involve the construction of a rope rescue system to move an immobilized patient from the Constitution Trail below to the Camelback Bridge above.

For safety reasons, Constitution Trail traffic may be held for 3 to 4 minutes when the actual lift occurs. Otherwise, the use of Constitution Trail under Camelback bridge will be unaffected.
