Thought it might be a nice to have the 2013 Coastal Trail/Glenn Highway Trail closures handy:

Repairs are scheduled from a bridge at mile 6.6 all the way down to 2nd Ave. (7 of 11 miles). Existing wood-plank bridge surfaces will be replaced with fiberglass-composite decking.

Ph 1: Mile 6.6 south around the end of the airport, should take three or four weeks, start mid to late-May.
Ph 2: From Westchester Lagoon to Second Avenue, with trail closures scheduled from June 24 to Aug. 15.
Ph 3: The last section, from Earthquake Park to the lagoon, begins Aug. 19 and continues up to Oct. 15.

Please see schedule updates here...

The city and contractors will develop a more detailed plan of detours and trail closures at some point.
------
The Glenn Highway trail should reopen May 1st from bridge replacement at Ship Creek but additional trail work is expected between Boniface and Birchwood portion of trails the rest of the summer. The work will primarily be performed at night with less impact to the pubic.

Coastal Trail Ph 1:

To: All Members
Jo asked me to inform you all that the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail rehab project has begun! As of yesterday a segment of the trail was closed in the vicinity of Point Woronzof and Earthquake Park. The trail will be closed in phases, so Parks and Rec is posting updates at this link...

This info will hopefully help folks plan their bike and walking treks on the trail.
P.S. Trail users are being detoured onto Point Woronzof Road, so please be extra alert when driving through that area.

Rode the Glenn Highway trail Sunday with road bike. Trail from JBER overpass to Hiland Road is now paved except for a small portion at the JBER crossing. They are prepping the trail from Muldoon to JBER over-pass for re-paving, etc. Conditions allowed for riding all the way from Mulddon to Hiland Road. Trail work starts at 8 p.m. until 6 a.m.

Glenn Highway Trail Update:
Trail from Ship Creek to JBER overpass is now packed gravel/dirt. Asphalt removed but doable with a road bike. They really do start working at 8 p.m.
