The following is a press release sent in from John Lively with CAWOOD.
The Canoe Canal Path under Interstate 5 will be closed Monday, Aug. 1 through Friday, Aug. 26.
During the closure, path users will be detoured to the reopened North Bank Path through the Willamette River Bridge construction zone. Signs and flaggers will direct path users to the detour.
The closure will allow contractors to lower the walls of the Canoe Canal and make other path changes to prepare for construction of the new northbound I-5 Willamette River Bridge.
The Canoe Canal Path will reopen on Aug. 27, and the North Bank Path under I-5 will once again be closed.
