The closure will allow construction crews to complete some work underneath the Robert L.B. Tobin Land Bridge, which will provide a safe pathway for people and animals to cross into currently divided sections of Phil Hardberger Park.

Construction began in fall 2018 and the work is scheduled for completion in Fall 2020, weather permitting. This project includes $13 Million in funding from the voter-approved 2017 Bond and the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy provided $10 Million in donor contributions.
