Indian Creek Trail Rerouted from (May 1 thru Sept. 1, 2016)

Lydia Avenue and 99th Street will be used as a Detour Route During Construction. KC Parks  plans to implement a new segment of Trail across Indian Creek that will impact the existing Indian Creek Trail and Blue Trails between the Green and Red Railroad Bridges east of Lydia Ave.

KC Parks has contracted for construction of a segment of trail that will connect Indian Creek Trail to E95th St at the Blue River. The contractor will be installing bridge abutments and installing a bridge across the existing Indian Creek Trail. The existing trail will remain in place after the construction of the new bridge is completed.

Detour map is part of this press release. Lydia Ave and 99th St will be used for alternate routes during construction and detour signage has been installed on the route. Trail users traveling east on Indian Creek Trail may access Lydia Ave from the trailhead path at the Indian Creek Bridge on Lydia Ave. and head south to 99th St and then east to the trailhead at 99th and Shephard. Trail users traveling south on the Blue River Trail may access the trailhead at 99th and Shephard and go west to Lydia Ave and the north on Lydia Ave to the Indian Creek Bridge to access the trail going west along Indian Creek.

Travelers with small children and/or those with mobility issues should be aware of inclines on the Lydia Ave detour route, this section of the detour is walkable, and those with bikes may wish to walk them through this section.
