Carson City’s Linear Ditch Trail, Fairview to Roop, to be closed for several weeks starting October 15
Temporary Closure of Linear Ditch Trail – Between Saliman and Roop
Sections of the Linear Ditch Trail, Fairview to Roop, will be closed starting Tuesday, October 15, for maintenance and cleaning. The multi-use path will be closed from the east end of the Linear Ditch, east of Fremont Elementary School and continue west to South Roop Street along Governor’s Field. Maintenance is anticipated to take up to several weeks.
The Linear Ditch Trail is a walking/bike path, extending from Roop Street to Fairview Drive and the Moffat Open Space access at Hells Bells Road. During the temporary closure, Public Works staff will be performing much needed channel and drainage cleanup in preparation for the wet winter season.
Rehabilitation efforts throughout the drainage system will be conducted, along with trash and debris removal. For the safety of staff and trail enthusiasts, sections of the multi-use path must be closed for the duration of the work, as there will be equipment along the trail, as well as exposed areas as a result of necessary dredging and removal of excess sediment.
The City sincerely regrets any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure. For a list of other trails in Carson City, please visit carson.org/trails. If you have any questions about this maintenance work, please call the Stormwater Hotline at 887-2305.
