Parking Area, Greenway and Cottonwoods Bridge Closures

It’s expected the recreational trail will be open when work on the project doesn’t require it to be closed, such as evenings and weekends.

The Springfield/Ziprick Road parking area near the Mindy Tran Memorial in Mission Creek Regional Park will be closed from Thursday, Oct.1 t through Oct. 12.

The lot closure is needed while crews remove and replace the Cottonwoods Bridge over Mission Creek.  There have been ongoing issues with the existing surface of the bridge and it is due for replacement.  The new bridge has an oxidized, weathered steel coating that will help reduce ongoing maintenance costs.

The Mission Creek Greenway will be closed as needed throughout the bridge replacement project.  It’s expected the recreational trail will be open when work on the project doesn’t require it to be closed, such as evenings and weekends.

Environmental protections and protocols are being followed throughout the bridge replacement project.

Park visitors may continue to access Mission Creek and the Mission Creek Greenway Regional Parks through the main parking area off Springfield and Durnin and Springfield and Leckie Roads.

Regional Parks Services thanks park and Greenway visitors for their understanding and patience during this infrastructure improvement project.
