The Stones River Greenway will be closed from the Manson Pike Trailhead to the platform area of the Stones River Bridge starting Monday, August 25, 2014, so that a sewer pipeline force main can be safely installed in the area.
The Manson Pike Trailhead will still be open for parking, and Greenway users may turn left from the trailhead to go north to use the trail. Access to Fortress Rosecrans and the Lytle Creek trail going toward Cannonsburgh will also be available at the platform of the Stones River Bridge.
The estimated timeframe for this portion of the project is approximately 40 days with the projected re-opening date of October 20, 2014.
Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department will notify the public of the bridge closures through signage, the city's Facebook page, and updates on the City's website at www.murfreesborotn.gov/parks. The public may also call Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department at (615) 890-5333.
