JUNEAU -- Access to a landmark Juneau trail will be restricted or rerouted for two months.
The state Department of Transportation says the Basin Road Bridge, which leads to Perseverance Trail, will be closed for repair of its wood trestles from Oct. 2 to Dec. 1.
The trail is an easy walk from downtown Juneau and popular with hikers.
DOT spokeswoman Brenda Hewitt tells the Juneau Empire that hikers desiring to reach Perseverance Trail will have to use the Gold Creek Flume Trail.
The flume trail along the side of Mount Juneau is susceptible to avalanches when snow collects at high elevations. City officials warned of avalanche danger there in May.
Hewitt says a temporary pedestrian bridge across Basin Road will be open from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. every night.
