Construction set for April 18-22 in North Creek Bridge area
Because of construction work, a section of The Legacy Trail will be closed April 18-22, with the reopening set for April 23, Sarasota County has announced.
The affected portion of the trail is in the North Creek Bridge area, located at yellow mile marker LT-7.55. It is approximately six-tenths of a mile north of Osprey Junction Trailhead Park and 1 mile south of Central Sarasota Parkway, a county news release says.
A utilities contractor will be connecting a water main for future development, the release explains. The project will require work in a limited space near the bridge with large equipment such as a backhoe, trucks, drilling equipment and sections of pipe, the release adds. The force main pipe is located approximately 50 feet under the edge of the trail, the release notes, so a cross section of the trail will have to be removed.
Other areas of The Legacy Trail will remain open during construction, the release says. Community residents and visitors are asked to plan on alternate routes.
