Thanks to funding from the voter-approved Parks Replacement Bond, this project will replace bridges at three locations on the Wildwood, Lower Macleay and Maple Trails in Forest Park. This project is also part of the RENEW Forest Park Initiative.
Construction of the new bridges on the Lower Macleay, Maple, and Wildwood Trails in Forest Park started in June 2017.
CURRENT TRAIL CLOSURES, updated 7/24/2017
|LOWER MACLEAY TRAIL
The Lower Macleay Trail has been closed since June 19, 2017 and will continue to be closed through mid-September 2017. A re-opening date will be posted once available.
The work to repair winter trail damage on the Lower Macleay Trail is completed, and the contractor is keeping the Lower Macleay closed to begin removal of the old bridges and installation of the new bridges. The trail will re-open once this work is fully completed.
|The Maple Trail segment is also under construction. This segment of trail has been closed already for several years due to the failure of the old bridge. Please respect the trail closure signage and use the detour routes for your safety.|
