Montgomery County has announced that a portion of the Schuylkill River Trail is scheduled to be closed temporarily between Swede and Ford streets in Norristown beginning the evening of Sunday, May 6th.
The portion of the trail, just under a mile, is planned to be closed from 6:00 p.m. on May 6th through 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 12th. There isn’t an official detour designated for the closure. Trail users can use local streets to find the route that is most convenient to them.
The closure is due to work being done to complete the Lafayette Street Extension Project. The viaduct that carries the existing trail will be demolished east of DeKalb Street to rebuild part of the trail in its new location. The full relocation of the trail will be completed by the end of the closure.
