Erosion may force Brotherhood Bridge Trail closure

High water on the Mendenhall River and erosion may force the Juneau park officials to close the Kaxdigoowu Heen Dei Trail, aka the Brotherhood Bridge Trail.

Erosion is occurring very close to the paved trail, about 500 feet from the trailhead, according to a Juneau Parks & Recreation release.

Park staff are monitoring the situation. For now, they advise using caution and staying on the paved trail in the area.

If it becomes unsafe, it may be closed and an alternative route made. The trail will be posted with directions if conditions change.

Contact on-call Parks & Rec staff at 957-6650 with concerns. For more information, call 586-5308.
