Holmes Run Trail Detour - Bridge construction at Ripley Street
Alexandria will be starting the long-delayed construction of the pedestrian/bike bridge on the Holmes Run Trail at Ripley Street on Monday, March 6.
The project will include a new bridge across Holmes Run, new retaining walls and stream restoration.
During construction (expected to last 12 months), the trail will be closed between Ripley Street and Beauregard Street.
Trail users will need to follow a signed detour route to continue on the Holmes Run Trail.
This detour route is a newly signed High Water Detour for the Holmes Run Trail. Once the weather gets warmer, the City plans to install sharrows on the roads
The detour route will take westbound users of the trail up North Pegram, turning left on Richenbacher, crossing over Van Dorn Street to Sanger Avenue and then a left onto Beauregard Street before meeting the trail at Morgan Street. Eastbound users would cross Beauregard at Morgan and then head north on Beauregard, turning right on Sanger, crossing over Van Dorn Street to Richenbacher and then a right onto North Pegram and continuing south to the trail. (This detour route does involve riding with traffic, especially on Sanger and Beauregard.)
There will be a public meeting to discuss the project on Tuesday, March 14 at 7:00 pm at the Beatley Library Conference Room , 5005 Duke Street.
