Below are links to the pedestrian/bike Detour Plans. Exact dates of schedule are subject to change (weather dependent).

New Seward Tunnel Detour LINK- Closed Thurs., May 19, 2016

If construction closures are required, this project will be accommodating of major running events scheduled for the 2016 summer season. The event route along the trail will be re-opened the Friday through Sunday of each scheduled event. The conditions may not be paved, but the trail surface will be smooth, compacted gravel and safe for runners (roller blades, skates and roller skiers are not advised to use trail until re-paved). Please use caution in construction zones.
