Water Line Replacement

December 6, 2017

The Little Miami Scenic Trail from Brush Row Road to Clifton Road (between Xenia and Yellow Springs) will be closed effective immediately for a water main installation project being done by Greene County Sanitary Engineering. This closure is expected to last until March 31, 2018. There will be barricades in place during the closure with no detour route posted. Please advise all trail users to not ride beyond the barricades in place. If you have questions regarding this project, please call Greene County Parks & Trails at 937-562-6440. 

A work-around route for the most experienced and confident trail users would be:

  • Northbound (Xenia to Yellow Springs): Turn left on Brush Row Road, then right onto US 68, then right on to Clifton Road, then left onto the Little Miami Scenic Trail.
  • Southbound (Yellow Springs to Xenia): Turn right onto Clifton Road, then left onto US 68. Do not ride the wrong way on the north-bound shoulder! Turn left onto Brush Row Road, then right onto the Little Miami Scenic Trail. 

Total distance of this route is about 1.2 miles (1.9 km), with about 1 mile of that along US 68. US 68 is a high speed roadway, with posted speed limits of 55 MPH. Most of this distance has good wide shoulders on both sides of the roadway, though they do narrow at the intersection with 235. Again, this route is only for experienced and confident riders. It is not recommended for children and those out on the trail with children.
