Floodwall closed for water line repairs, trail work in Forest Hill Park

Temporary closure between 6:00 AM and 6:00 PM daily.

From Richmond MORE.

We have been informed that the Floodwall walkway under the Manchester Bridge on the south side of the river is closed for construction due to a DPW/DPU project that involves painting, concrete repair and water line rehabilitation. The area directly under the bridge is being used by the contractors and is dangerous to pedestrians, bicyclists, etc. and is closed from the hours of 6am – 6pm daily.

The map above outlines the approximate closure area and shows an on road/sidewalk alternative for access the Mayo Bridge and Ancarrow’s Landing Trails.

Since I’m using Richmond MORE as a news source I think it’s only fair that I point out some trail work they’re doing this weekend as well.

This Saturday, October 18th, we have a small project that we’ll be working on in Forest Hill Park. The hill near lake with the bermed switchback on the east side of the park needs to be rebenched and the grade reversals need some cleanup so that they better shed water off of the trail.

To reach the worksite, enter Forest Hill Park at the Reedy Creek entrance on Riverside Drive. Follow the gravel road up along Reedy Creek and you’ll see us shortly before reaching the lake.

We’ll get started at 9am and with enough people be done by lunch. We have the tools, so just bring your work clothes, gloves and some water.
