A new bridge will be constructed over Mill Creek in July, but material needs to be helicoptered in.

During the helicopter work, Mill Creek Trailhead will be closed this week from 6 a.m. Tuesday, July 1 until 5 p.m. Thursday, July 3.

The closure is for public safety and as soon as the materials delivered to the bridge site, the area will be reopened.

The small footbridge (see photo) was damaged by the past winter snowloads, and portions were also rotting. It was removed earlier this year.
