Juneau: Kaxdigoowu Héen Dei (Brotherhood Bridge Trail) Montana Creek Pedestrian Bridge Closed
AkGlobe News/10233053

~ The Kaxdigoowu Héen Dei (Brotherhood Bridge Trail) pedestrian bridge over Montana Creek has been closed due to continued erosion of the banks supporting the bridge abutment. The bridge was previously closed in the fall of 2022 after a large storm scoured the bank of Montana Creek and undermined the bridge abutment. Emergency stabilization work was completed and the bridge was reopened for pedestrian use, however, bank erosion continued this winter and the bridge is now closed due to unsafe conditions.

A barrier is being installed to prohibit access to the bridge and warning signs have been posted. Climbing down the river banks is prohibited as it will increase erosion. The streambanks and bridge abutment will be evaluated for stabilization and repair. For more information, contact Colby Shibler at (907) 364-2800.
