Three bridges will be replaced on the Katy Trail this fall, one at MM 105.7 near Rhineland, one at MM 93.5 near Gore and one at MM 77.4 just east of Marthasville. Construction for the bridges at MM 105.7 and 77.4 began Oct. 22; construction for the bridge at MM 93.5 will begin Oct. 29. Anticipated reopening of all three bridges is by Dec. 17. For the bridge replacements at Rhineland (MM 105.7) and Marthasville (MM 77.4), detours will be provided and signs posted directing trail users to the detours. Users will need to exercise caution and be alert to vehicles since a portion of the both detours follows road routes. Beginning Oct. 29, the trail will be closed from MM 96.9 (Case) to MM 89 (Bernheimer) as there is no detour option in that area. Signs and barriers will be erected warning trail users of the closure. Users should avoid this area and not go beyond the barriers.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we replace these bridges.
