East End closure paves the way for improvements at Sand Run Metro Park

Jogging Trail at Sand Run
Failing culvert located at the intersection of Sand Run Parkway and North Portage Path
Crossings will be relocated to safer locations with flashing beacon lights to increase visibility.
  • Road salt and traffic are harmful to surrounding natural resources and sensitive wildlife, such as salamanders and other amphibians.
  • As a trail, the road could extend the Jogging Trail and allow for an improved connection to the Towpath Trail at Big Bend.
  • The cost to repair the culvert is estimated at nearly $1 million.
