Major Boardwalk Repair Project Scheduled for Alderman's Ford
Hillsborough County, Fla. (April 12, 2018) - The boardwalk at Alderman's Ford Conservation Park will be closed for repairs from Monday, April 16, through September.
The work will be the most extensive to the half-mile boardwalk in three decades, replacing everything but the pilings. On a short section damaged by Hurricane Irma in September, the pilings also will be replaced.
The project also will affect access to the 1.9 mile paved trail that wends along the north and south prongs of the Alafia River. A portion of the trail will be shut down from the main park entrance to the double bridges Monday through Friday. On weekends, the entire trail will be open.
