Alert: 10 day Springwater Trail detour starts Monday

Posted by on January 11th, 2013 at 2:53 pm

Detour just announced by Portland Parks (Note: This is not the landslide on the Willamette we’ve reported about a few times. That one is still not fixed and there are no new updates since my last report back in October):

Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) will begin work on a public safety project this Monday, January 14 along the Springwater Corridor Trail at SE 45th Ave.

Erosion has destabilized a Springwater Corridor Trail bridge over Johnson Creek, just east of SE 45th Ave.

Repair work will begin this Monday, January 14, but the bridge will remain open on that day. The bridge must be closed and a detour put in place for trail users beginning Tuesday, January 15.

The detour will be about 500 yards onto Johnson Creek Blvd. Trail users are urged to exercise caution when navigating the detour onto Johnson Creek Blvd.

PP&R anticipates the detour to remain in place for up to 10 days until repairs are completed.
