Little Miami Scenic Trail Closure: MM15-16

September 11, 2009

This is a notice that the riverbank restoration project just south of Corwin on the Little Miami Scenic Trail will begin this coming Monday morning September 14, 2009. Trail closures may be expected between September 14 and October 14, 2009. Barricades will be placed in the area of MM 15 and 16, just south of the Corwin Village limits. Trail users are advised to use the Corwin Staging area for points north on the trail and the Caesar Creek Access staging area for points south.

Our thanks go to Marsha Rolph with the Warren County Soil and Water Conservation District for coordinating work and securing the EPA Grant funding for this project. As many of you are aware, we were in danger, in the very near future, of losing that portion of trail due to riverbank erosion. It is expected that this project will restore a sustainable bank slope and preserve the original railroad/trail base.

We regret the inconvenience of a trail closure. However, it became apparent during our last site visit that due to the extent of the erosion and the size of the heavy equipment required to conduct the repairs, that a safe route around the project would not be possible. We ask our loyal park users to bear with us as we make these continued improvements to ensure the integrity of the trail.

If you have any further questions please give me a call.

Thank you,

Alan Ferguson
