September 11 update - The damage to the pin pile bridge on the Foothills Trail was substantial, spanning a 20’ section of the bridge. Bridge engineering staff inspected and determined the beams that provide fundamental support for the bridge would need to be replaced. Replacement supports are expected by mid-October. A temporary solution is under consideration by Parks and Engineering Staff. For safety purposes, the entire pin pile bridge has been closed with barricades to discourage people getting near the damaged section. We are moving as fast a possible to get that section safely opened and will keep the community posted as our plans are finalized.
