  • 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.
