Beargrass Creek Greenway trail closed indefinitely due to flooding, cleanup

February 27, 2018

The Beargrass Creek Greenway trail, in its entirety, is closed indefinitely due to the recent flooding event in Louisville.

Floodwaters and flash flooding have damaged – and even washed away – major portions of the paved bicycle path.

A major section of the trail has already been closed since last summer due to an MSD basin project and is scheduled to be closed through 2019. A map of the previous closure can be found here.

There is no timetable currently available on repairs or when the path will re-open.
