Skip Navigation LinksHome » News » News Article

May 11, 2020 - ​The Border-to-Border Trail in Gallup Park, just east of the Mitchell Field bridge, is in need of repair to patch areas that have degraded. A full trail reconstruction in this area is tentatively planned for next summer, and these trail repairs are intended to provide temporary relief until then. Work will take place over the course of one day, weather permitting, on Tuesday, May 12. During construction, the segment of the trail between the Gallup wooden vehicle bridge on the east and the Mitchell Field bridge on the west 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 path will provide a better riding surface. The city thanks park users in advance for their patience.

Any questions can be directed to Landscape Architect/Park Planner Hillary Hanzel at  Please see the Mitchell Field Pedestrian Bridge Map, https://ww​ (PDF), for further details on the closure.
