Storm Drain Repairs Close Section of American River Parkway for Two Months

Storm Drain Repairs Close Section of American River Parkway for Two Months

Starting Aug. 29, the stretch of trail between the El Manto entrance and the Sunriver Park entrance will be closed.

Starting Aug. 29, a stretch of the American River Parkway Trail—from the El Manto entrance to the Sunriver Park entrance—will be closed for two months for construction.  

According to the City of Rancho Cordova, the closure is due to repairs required for a storm drain outfall located near the Ambassador Park Drive entrance of the parkway.  

“During the closure, there will be a detour in place along Ambassador Drive, Yukon River Way, and Klamath River Drive,” said the city. “There will be signage with a detour map along the parkway trail.”  

The detour map is also available on the city's website, which you can view here. The detour is approximately 1.65 miles long.

Construction crews will work on the repair project six days per week, Monday through Saturday. However, those hoping for some trail fun over Labor Day weekend are in luck. The currently closed parkway section will temporarily reopen from Sept. 3 to Sept. 5 for the holiday weekend, according to the city.   

For more information about the project, the public is encouraged to reach out to Kristine Courdy at kcourdy@cityofranchocordova.org or 916-851-8842, or Margarita Dronov at mdronov@cityofranchocordova.org or 916-851-8897.
