Detours in Dayton

Updated October 28, 2020

Please see our network-wide alert regarding trail amenities during the COVID-19 emergency in Ohio. 

Please see another notice about a detour near Carillon Park along the Great Miami River Trail.

A few segments of trail are currently affected by construction in downtown Dayton:

1. The ped/bike bridge over the Mad River, between RiverScape MetroPark and Deeds Point MetroPark is closed. Trail users can add just a half-mile to their trip and cross the Mad River using wide sidepaths on the Webster Street Bridge.

2. Dayton sewer work has closed the trail downstream of the Stewart Street Bridge, in the vicinity of UD Arena. The trail on this side of the river was less than a mile long when open. The closure does not affect the longer segment of the Great Miami River trail on the opposite bank of the river -- connecting Dayton southward through the City of Franklin.

3. A detour will route cyclists onto city bike lanes, share-the-road routes or sidewalks through Fall 2021 in downtown Dayton; see picture below for the detour options. The trail will be closed on both banks of the river for the Third Street Bridge replacement. As of June 24, 2020, this detour has its own detour along Fourth Street; follow the detour signs to complete your way to RiverScape MetroPark.
