Columbus Recreation and Parks Trail Construction Updates


ALUM CREEK TRAIL - ACADEMY PARK SUSPENSION BRIDGE
The suspension bridge over Alum Creek between Academy Park and Wolfe Park will be closed from April 15 to September 1 for a restoration project.  The historic structure was built in 1922 and will undergo a complete overhaul of the towers, railings, decking, and approaches.  The structural work will close the trail for a short segment on the east side (Wolfe Park) of the river, between Broad Street and Park Drive.  Signed detours around the bridge site are posted for users.
See the Detour Map.

GRANDVIEW AVENUE TO CENTRAL POST OFFICE / 910 DUBLIN ROAD
We are excited to announce that construction is now beginning on the gap in the Scioto Trail between Grandview Avenue and the Central Post Office.  This linkage is being built by ODOT, and will connect the entire path between downtown and the Grandview/Hilltop area.  Construction includes two bridges over the Scioto River.  During this 18 month time period, users will not be able to access the path @ Grandview Avenue, and the path will be barricaded near its current end @ the Post Office.  Users will still be able to use the path from the Confluence to the Sauder Avenue bridge and cross to the Floodwall Path.  Users can also still use the north segment of the trail from McKinley Avenue, the new Hilltop Connector bridge, and a 0.5 mile section to Riversedge.
Scheduled completion date is the fall of 2013. --Holly Grimes (11/13/2012) 

RIVERSEDGE TO FIFTH AVENUE
Construction has started on a new 1 mile extension of the trail north to Fifth Avenue.  This will not involve any detours or closures. 

670 / 71 BRIDGE RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT, 12/1/11
A section of the I-670 Trail between St. Clair and the north entry drive to Fort Hayes High School will be closed beginning December 7, 2011.  This 800' closure is for the 670/71 bridge reconstruction project.  The path segment will be closed until 2014.  The east leg of the trail, from Nelson Road to St. Clair, and the west leg from Jack Gibbs/Cleveland Ave. to Fort Hayes, will remain open.  An on-street detour is posted using Spring St. and Long St.
