Tony Knowles Coastal Trail to See Repair Closures

A 7-mile stretch of Anchorage's popular coastal trail will be closed eight hours a day for repairs most of next week.

The southern section of the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail will be closed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. starting Tuesday and continuing through Friday.

Officials say the trail will be open during other hours to accommodate bike commuters and others who want to use the entire trail.

The work is set to take place between the Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility at Hutson Drive and the Sisson Bridge to the south.

Officials say there will be no available detour route to or from Kincaid Park because of the trail's isolation.

The work is part of the city's trail improvement projects. Last year, some of the coastal trail was resurfaced.
