**4/21/20: Rescheduled to April 28. *4/6/20: Postponed: Planned closure and maintenance of the lower Argo Cascades pedestrian bridge originally scheduled to begin April 7 has been postponed. The new schedule will be shared once it becomes available.

April 1, 2020 - ​​The pedestrian bridge at the bottom of the Argo Cascades, located along the Border-to-Border Trail, is in need of replacement. Previously planned construction will continue as scheduled, as it is an essential safety repair. The existing bridge will be replaced with a new bridge and a protective concrete deck to minimize long-term maintenance. **Rescheduled: Work is scheduled to start on Tuesday, April 28 and take approximately two weeks. During construction, the bridge will be closed, and a pedestrian detour route will be marked for the Border-to-Border Trail. Signs and barricades will be installed to safely direct pedestrians away from the construction zone.

While the temporary closure is an inconvenience to users, the repairs to the bridge will provide longer-term durability. The city thanks park users in advance for their patience.

Any questions can be directed to Landscape Architect/Park Planner Hillary Hanzel at hhanzel@a2gov.org. Please see the **​lower Argo Cascades pedestrian bridge map (PDF) for further details on the closure.
