news reporter emma joins us live from part of the path that will be closed to show us which places will be restricted and for how long. matt... renee.. i am here at alton baker park and this area will serve as a detour while around two miles of the south bank bike path are closed this summer between the peter defazio bridge and the autzen bridge brian richardson with the city of eugene says that crews will be working to remove the path and make way for a brand new one as part of the riverfront construction project. utilities that exist under the path will also need to be pushed back to make room for the park. he also says that a project of this magnitude will not be a short one brian richardson: "this will be a lengthy closure. we expect it to be closed... the path to be closed, at least a section,up until the early part of 2021. he says this is necessary to ensure the safety of not only those who use the path, but those who will be working on the construction of a new one. he also says however that both the autzen bridger, and the peter defazio bridge will be open during the project... allowing for an easy detour while construction is happening. this will help satisfy some of those crowds that are used to using this path to get to autzen come football season. we will have a map of the closures on our website and keep you updated as to when they will take effect. live in eugene emma jerome kezi 9 news.
