The repairs to Slide #1 on the Bayside Trail are scheduled to begin soon. We have a pre-construction meeting with the contractor on 12 November, and repairs will begin shortly after that. We’ll have the exact construction start date by next week. Construction is expected to last until 12 December.
The Bayside Trail will be closed during that time, including weekends, with a fence and gate at the top of Battery Humphreys road. Navy personnel will still be allowed access to Battery Humphreys.
As far as the scheduled VIP-led Bayside Trail nature walks are concerned, we’re evaluating whether to conduct the walks elsewhere in the park or if we will just cancel them. More information to come once the decision has been made.
