Detours and Closures

1) Ohio River Valley Section Running from Portland Wharf Park and continuing behind Shawnee Golf Course 

Currently, there is a detour in the Ohio River Valley Section. The Riverwalk, starting at Portland Wharf Park, is closed due to bank erosion repairs. Detour signs will lead Loop users from 31st Street along Northwestern Parkway to the Shawnee Golf Course. Detour signs lead Loop users back to the Riverwalk through Shawnee Park.

Traveling from the opposite direction, detour signs will lead Loop users from the north end of Shawnee Park to Bank Street and back to 31st Street joining the Riverwalk towards downtown.

Metro Parks and the US Army Corps of Engineers have entered into a Project Partnership Agreement for the Design and Construction phases to stabilize the Ohio River bank along the Louisville Loop in Portland Wharf Park and Shawnee Golf Course. This agreement allows the US Army Corps of Engineers to begin the Design Phase of the Portland Wharf Park Riverbank Stabilization project.

The design phase was completed in summer 2016, and a first phase construction project was awarded in fall 2016.  Riverbank stabilization at Portland Wharf Park began in February 2017 and is slated for completion in November 2017.  The second phase of construction at the riverbank along Shawnee Golf Course is now being advertised for bids, and is scheduled to begin in early winter 2017.  That second phase of riverbank stabilization is expected to last approximately 12 months, with the Louisville Loop re-opening in the fall of 2018.
