Please be aware, during or following a rainfall, portions of the trail network may be muddy and/or slippery. Please slow down and use caution, especially on boardwalks. Always use caution whenever you encounter a wet section of trail. During the winter months, be mindful of the potential for ice. In the instance of accumulating snowfall, trails are cleared when 3 or more inches are recorded.
Trail Closures and Detours:
Tree Work: Beginning February 23rd, a tree contractor will begin working on various trails, including the Pufferbelly Trail, the Fishing Line Trail, Beckett's Run, and the Maumee Pathway. Trail users are advised to use extreme caution if they encounter crews and pass only when workers confirm that it is safe to do so.
Maumee Pathway: Utility work is taking place west of Maplecrest Rd. Ramps and platforms are present on the trail which may cause challenges for some users. Please use caution in the area. This utility project will cause intermittent closures as different parts of the project are carried out. Please obey all workers/signage in the area.
St.Marys Pathway: Beginning January 8th, a bridge project at Lower Huntington Road has closed the trail. This project is expected to last until July. Suggested detours are shown in this map.
Rivergreenway Closures near Downtown Fort Wayne:
- Riverfront Development (Phase 2) has caused the closure of the St.Marys Pathway between Clinton and Harrison Streets, with a further closure between the Historic Wells Street Bridge and Ewing St. occuring in the near future. This will be in effect through 2024.
- The pedestrian bridge just South of Lawton Park is closed for reconstruction. A posted detour is in place. Please note that this will be a long-term closure. While this bridge is part of the St.Marys Pathway, its location is important to the connection of all Rivergreenway Pathways, meaning that many Rivergreenway trail users may be impacted. We apologize for the inconvenience.
- The above closures/detours can be seen on this map.
Maplecrest Rd Trail: Construction near Georgetown has disabled pedestrian push buttons at E State Blvd and Maplecrest Rd. Trails users can cross E State Blvd with traffic and are advised to use caution.
Foster Park Area:
- Construction continues at the north end of Foster Park near where the Rivergreenway exits the Park area. Please use caution in the area.
- A Utilities project has started that affects the trail near Hartman Road. Hartman road has turned into a temporary one-way to allow for pedestrians to use the southbound lane freely.
