The Dividing Sycamore Bridge in Mill Creek Park will close to traffic for roadway construction work on Monday, August 26, 2019. The temporary closure will include a section of Bears Den Drive between West Drive and Cross Drive. The work is a component of the MetroParks’ capital improvement project to rehabilitate the historic sandstone bridge. The bridge and roadway will remain closed and inaccessible for approximately seven weeks. All Mill Creek Park facilities near the project site, including Lower Bears Den Picnic Area, will remain open and accessible throughout the duration of the project. Previously scheduled races and events that require use of the bridge will not be impacted.
In the event of inclement weather, the work schedule will be delayed and adjusted accordingly.
