Detour Mile 3.25

Notice: Extension of Trail Detour at Howe Bridge undercrossing for Levee Improvement Project
Detour end date will be extended to February 28, 2015. The US Army Corps of Engineers current schedule expects that trail restoration will be completed by late February, pending no additional project delays. Location: South bank bike trail on American River Parkway, where it passes under the Howe Avenue Bridge. View the map on our Facebook page.
The last phase of this levee project includes placing a seepage blanket--a special concrete layer--under the bridge to finish strengthening this section of levee. This bridge crossing area had been a weak spot in the levee that needed strengthening to better protect Sacramento from catastrophic flooding. The project ran into some unexpected delays. Thank you for your patience.
Levee Work at Gristmill Park – Work began on November 19, 2014 and will continue for two weeks at the upstream portion of the levee. The work involves a small amount of earth moving to make a berm that ties in the end of the levee with high ground.

Guy West Bridge Closures - Beginning Saturday, 11/1 at 6 a.m. to Monday, 11/3 to 6 a.m. the Guy West Bridge will be closed, and again on Fridays at 6 p.m. until Mondays at 6 a.m. on the following weekends: 11/7–11/10; 11/14–11/17; and 11/21–11/24 (subject to change). Recommended Alternate Route: Stay on south side of river and cross at Watt Avenue Bridge. Read about other river crossings.

River Bend Area Plan Map Amendment Public Hearings
The proposed project would amend the River Bend Area Plan Map to make it consistent with the previously approved Camp Fire Day Camp Master Plan by adding the following icons to the map: Parking, Restroom, and Interpretive Area, as well as create an additional icon labeled Primitive Group Camp. More information can be found in the Notification Letter.
Multiple Flood/Infrastructure Projects Create Detours 
Until the end of 2014, work projects will impact the levee top trails and short sections of the Jedediah Smith Memorial Bike Trail. Work includes levee strengthening and improvements on the Guy West Bridge. View the color-coded map. View detour maps of Howe Avenue and Del Paso Blvd projects.

Watercraft Advisory:   
The reduced flows in the Sacramento and American Rivers have brought lower levels to boat launches. Larger boats have reportedly hit shallow bottoms or been unable to launch. It is recommended that boaters check the levels at the ramps prior launching.

Fire Risk Reduction Plans for the Parks System
A number of fire risk reduction projects are being implemented to protect Regional Park property and the surrounding communities from damage due to fires. View the detailed plans and maps.

Know Your Rangers
The Ranger Stewardship Program designates an individual Ranger as the main point of contact for specific park areas. This map shows each Ranger's area. Each Ranger is available by email to address your issues and concerns.

Year Round Maintenance Keeps Your Golf Courses in Great Shape!
Soil aeration is one task that protects and promotes the greens. The plugs are swept up and sand is spread over the holes helping the turf “breathe.” Golf Superintendent Greg Bliek and his staff are always working to keep your golf game a quality experience. Book your tee time here.
