Does the new bridge mean changes to the off-leash area?

The off-leash area and the multi-use pathway in Jim Uffelmann Memorial Park will be left largely intact; however, a portion of the off-leash area and multi-use pathway will be closed to the public during construction. There is a detour for the multi-use pathway to maintain connectivity. Closure Map

There are some decisions still to be made regarding pathway alignments and facilities; however, the bridge has been designed to minimize the impact to the multi-use pathway and river access of the off-leash area. An amenity space with benches and tables beneath the bridge is also being planned.

Once construction is completed the temporary parking area established during the Griffin Road realignment will be permanently re-located to the PCL site trailer office pad for park users.
