Due to safety concerns for trail users accessing a closed section of Sinton Trail, crews will install chain link fences to prevent access to this portion of the trail. Please respect the trail closure signs.
The closure is between Holland Park Blvd and just east of Amstel Drive. It's been closed since January following a heavy storm that caused a major washout of the north embankment of Douglas Creek.
Since the trail was originally closed, it was discovered that a significant portion of the creek and embankment will need to be reconstructed in order to provide a more sustainable water channel and ensure the trail surface is not damaged again, once repaired. A second phase of work will begin soon to address a section of the trail immediately to the west of Chestnut Street
Sinton Trail closure extended to Chestnut Street beginning June 28 through mid-August
Beginning June 28 through mid-August the Sinton Trail will fully close between Holland Park Boulevard and Chestnut Street. This will allow crews to conduct creek maintenance near Chestnut Street to prevent further damage to the creek, trail and protect nearby infrastructure. Trail users will be detoured onto Vondelpark Drive. Thank you for your patience and for avoiding the area as we work to reconstruct the damaged areas.
