Carmel Country bike path in Carmel Valley closed Jan. 12, 13

A well-used portion of the State Route 56 bike trail off Carmel Country Road will be closed on Tuesday, Jan. 12 and Wednesday, Jan. 13. The trail will be closed on both sides of Carmel Country Road as the city is working on a design for a bridge section—a geotechnical consultant will be taking samples.

There is currently a bypass route due to the flooding nature of this bike path section and signs will guide users to take this bypass. The city will be posting warning signs about the closure weeks in advance.
