Closure Planned for Riverside Drive and Ohio River Greenway
Construction crews will be replacing railroad ties on the L&I Bridge
CLARKSVILLE, IN (September 19, 2022) – A small section of West Riverside Drive in Clarksville will be closed to all traffic beginning Monday, September 26th. A contract was recently awarded to Cooper Railroad Service to replace the railroad ties on the L & I Bridge, which is just east of the entrance to the Falls of the Ohio State Park.
Due to that railroad work, the section of Riverside Drive under the bridge will be closed to all traffic. The closure also includes the closure of the Ohio River Greenway to pedestrians and bicyclists. The work is scheduled to begin Monday, September 26th and run through the evening of Friday, September 30th.
There is the possibility that both the trail and road may reopen throughout the evenings, however, that will be determined daily by the contractor. Detour signs will be posted to assist drivers in finding alternate routes.
