Once repairs are completed on the first bridge, it will be reopened and work will begin on the second bridge. The planned closures are necessary for the safety of trail users, the release states.

The first bridge to be repaired is in Bel Air, near where the trail passes under the Bel Air Bypass (Route 1) along Tollgate Road.

A few days later, the bridge located about three-quarters of a mile south of the Williams Street trailhead, where the Liriodendron spur trail connects to the main trail, will be closed.

Temporary signage will be placed at trailheads and closer to the bridges on the days when work is occurring.

Updates will be posted on the Harford County Government Facebook page, www.facebook.com/HarfordCountyMD.
