2. The trail segment along Edwin C. Moses Blvd. between Stewart Street and the Courtyard Marriott/UD softball field is closed through July 2020 for sewer improvements. The sidewalk on the opposite side of Edwin C. Moses will serve as a detour, though there is no crosswalk back across the street at the Courtyard Marriott end of the closure. Trail users should exercise caution in the area.

3. A half-mile, intermittent detour will be in place through 2019 near the Main Street Bridge in Dayton. For trail users traveling south/downstream on the downtown side of the river, the trail will detour up the ramp at RiverScape MetroPark where cyclists must walk their bikes across the plaza to reach Monument Avenue. Pedestrians may use the sidewalk and cyclists will share the road heading westbound across Main Street until just past the First Baptist Church where they may turn right onto a multi-use walkway, left on the gravel RiverWalk and ramp down to the trail through the RiversEdge amphitheater. Northbound travelers on the downtown side will ramp up at the amphitheater and use the same multi-use walkway between the YMCA and First Baptist Church. Pedestrians may use the sidewalk to reach RiverScape and ramp down to the trail. Because Monument Avenue is a one-way street and cyclists are not permitted on sidewalks, cyclists will detour across Monument Avenue to share the road heading south on Ludlow Street, turn left or east on East First Street and north or left on North Jefferson Street. They will then proceed on foot through the RiverScape MetroPark plaza before ramping down to the trail. For cyclists and pedestrians traveling north/upstream on the north side of the river, the detour directs them to use the stairs up the levee downstream/west of the bridge to the gravel River Walk on top of the levee, then down  to Riverview Avenue at the McDaniel Street stairway and across the street to the sidewalk along the north side of the street. They will cross Main Street and continue on the paver pathway at the top of the floodwall, cross Riverside Drive and use the ramp near the Korean War Memorial at Temple Israel to return to the trail. Southbound travelers on the north side of the river will reverse this pattern, ramping up at Temple Israel, crossing Riverside Drive and proceeding along the river before returning to the trail via the stairs at McDaniel Street.
