Wilderness Park Bridge Closed Beginning October 3

The pedestrian and bicycle bridge in Wilderness Park, south of the Pioneers Blvd trailhead, will be closed for nearly two weeks, beginning Monday, October 3. Large rock, called "rip-rap," will be installed to stabilize the stream bank that was damaged during the 2015 flooding in the park.

"While the bridge was not threatened by the flooding, the stabilization of the stream is necessary to protect that significant investment in the park trail system," said Sara Hartzell, Park Planner for Lincoln Parks and Recreation. She said the pedestrian and bicycle bridge will be closed during this construction due to the presence of large equipment. The pedestrian and bicycle trail will remain open during construction.
