Bolin Creek Trail Night Closures

Post Date:08/28/2019 8:02 AM

Starting around Wednesday, Aug. 28, the Bolin Creek Trail will be closed at night for repairs to the Franklin Street bridge over Bolin Creek.

Closures will take place periodically until the project is completed this fall. The trail will be closed from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Barricades and directional signage will be in place for pedestrians who may be accessing the trail at night.

Eastbound trail users will have to exit the trail via the stairs that lead to Franklin Street next to Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen. Those trying to reach Community Center Park will have to use the stairs, walk on the sidewalk to the Franklin Street/Estes Drive intersection, cross Franklin Street at the light, and then continue on Estes Drive to the park.

Westbound trail users will have to cross Franklin Street at the Franklin Street/Estes Drive light, then use the sidewalk to access the stairs next to the Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen.

Some nighttime lane closures for vehicle traffic will take place in the next week or two.
