Active Updates

Thompson Community Center Closure

May 8 – June 2

Thompson Community Center will be closed due to a scheduled cleaning.

Turnberry Golf Course

April 29 – TBD

The entrance bridge at Turnberry Golf Course had a structural failure on Saturday, April 29. Since this is the main access point to the golf course, it is temporarily closed. Contractors were out first thing Monday, May 1, to survey the bridge and see how it can be addressed. The team at Turnberry is working on ways to make the course and amenities available on a limited basis, including league play and scheduled events; staff will reach out to these groups directly.

Unfortunately, due to limited access and safety concerns, the course will not be open for daily/walk-in play until the bridge work is completed. More information will be available in the coming days.

Downtown Connector Trail Closure

March 7 – Early June

The department will resurface approximately 2 miles of the existing downtown connector trail’s asphalt pavement between the western limit at Cleveland Avenue and the eastern limit at Leonard Avenue/bridge over IR-670. This project includes milling and grinding of the existing asphalt trail, installation of new asphalt and curb ramp reconstruction at the intersection of Joyce Avenue. Landscape improvements, such as tree plantings and clearing and grubbing to improve trail and road traffic visibility, are also included.

Detour: A detour for bicyclists will be provided to direct them to use Leonard Avenue during trail closure.

Alum Creek Trail Closures

May 1 – Late July

The department will be removing and replacing the superstructure of the Alum Creek Trail bridge crossing Alum Creek and Champions Golf Course this Spring/Summer. In addition, the west bank of Alum Creek will be re-established just north of the bridge crossing.

Detour: No trail detour will be provided for this project.
