Advisory: River View Cemetery closed to bike traffic Tuesday


Tomorrow, (Tuesday, 4/27), a road in the lower portion of River View Cemetery will be close all day to all traffic due to a construction project at the mausoleum. Cemetery GM David Noble says bike traffic will not be able to get through:

“A large crane with its outriggers will be completely blocking the road, as well as the shoulders so there is no way for anyone to even walk their bicycle through to slip by (not that we want them to anyway, since it is a very dangerous construction zone).”

Noble says they’ll have signs near the top so folks don’t roll all the way down and then have to backtrack up the hill. The closure is expected to only last one day. I’m not familiar with riding in that area, so if you know of a good alternate route, feel free to share it in the comments.
