Provo River Trail Bridge Detour

The Provo River Parkway Trail will be closed near the I-15 underpass for renovations as a part of the ongoing freeway construction. An alternate route is provided until the project’s expected completion in 2012.

The Utah Departmnet of Transportation explains:

Through summer 2012, the trail will be closed at I-15 while crews expand I-15 and rebuild the freeway bridges over the trail. This closure is in place for trail-user safety. I-15 CORE worked with Provo City to develop an improved, well-marked alternate route for trail users during I-15 construction. Once work is complete, users will have improved height clearance and a lighted 10-foot-wide trail under-crossing.

The two year wait is certainly disheartening. But, we’re looking forward to the improved width, highth, and lighting of the trail crossing.

If anyone uses the alternate route, we’d love to hear about your experiences. Email us at: bikeprovo@gmail.com.
