A detour will be in place for a one-mile section of the American River Parkway bike trail beginning at 9 a.m. today to allow for trail repairs.

The detour, between the mile markers 2.5 and 3.5, will take trail users up on the adjacent levee, according to a Sacramento Regional Parks news release.

Officials said work is necessary to repair damage to areas of the trail undermined by beavers.

The trail will be open through the repair site during the weekend. The closure and detour will resume Monday and continue during the week until repairs are completed.

In addition, the Guy West Bridge, near mile 8 of the bike trail, will be closed to all traffic Saturday for bridge inspection and repair.

Trail users will be detoured a short distance onto the levee so they don't have to pass under the bridge.
