A portion of the American River Bike Trail near Nimbus Dam will be closed for more than three days beginning Monday, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and state Department of Parks and Recreation report.
During the three days, there will be electricity tests of the ground grid at Nimbus Dam and Powerplant, according to a Bureau of Reclamation news release. The tests will ensure proper grounding of electrical equipment and other metallic objects in and around the dam and powerplant, officials said.
The closure is scheduled to begin at 7 a.m. Monday and continue until noon Nov. 16. The closure will start at Nimbus Dam and continue to the Negro Bar Recreation Area.
People using the bike trail access points at the Hazel Avenue overpass, the Sunset Avenue and Main Avenue intersection, the Mississippi Bar area and the Negro Bar area, are advised that there will be no through traffic along the closure area, according to the news release.
Users are advised to recreate on other trails in the area. The south side of Lake Natoma will not be affected. Signage will be posted near the closed section of the trail.
