Posted: January 12, 2018
The north end of Riverfront Park located at 4122 River Drive will be closed for maintenance along the canal embankment beginning Friday, January 12, 2018.
In order to maintain the canal levee, crews will be cutting and mulching vegetation along the canal embankment Monday through Friday only from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. No work will be performed on Saturdays and Sundays, and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday.
Runners and walkers will have access to the entire trail from 6 - 8 a.m. and from 3:30 - 9 p.m. by entering the south end of Riverfront Park at 312 Laurel Street.
To ensure the safety of the public, the trail will be closed to guests in the active work areas until 3:30 p.m.
Park visitors can view a map of the active work area at the park’s South Ranger Station during the duration of the project. The project is expected to be completed within 30 days.
