A part of the Little Miami Scenic Trail is closing for six months starting in June as modifications are made to the King Avenue Bridge, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources said.
Safety shoulders will be added in both directions on the bridge, which crosses the Little Miami River in Warren County, and its two lanes will be widened. A new car park with additional trail access will also be constructed and part of the trail will be moved to a safer location east of Grandin Road, the ministry said.
“We worked closely with the Warren County Engineer’s Office when planning this project to minimize impact to trail users while maximizing opportunities for improved facilities and rider safety. trails,” Melissa Clark, manager of Little Miami State Park, said in a statement. . “We encourage trail users to check the trail closure status when planning future trips.”

Coming from the south, Old 3-C will be the last junction to leave the trail before closing. Cyclists and pedestrians can resume the track in South Lebanon, and the Lebanon Spur Trail also connects to the Little Miami River north of the closure.
The project is expected to be completed in early 2023. However, once the bridge replacement is complete, the trail will be closed for another two to three weeks, while the diverted section is connected to the rest of the scenic trail.
