BEL AIR, Md. — Two walking bridges on the Ma & Pa Trail will be closing for repairs and maintenance beginning on Monday, September 30.

According to the release, Harford County Parks & Recreation will close each bridge for repairs from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. for about two to three days.

Once the repairs are complete on the first bridge, it will be reopened and work will begin on the second bridge.

The first bridge to be repaired is in Bel Air, near where the trail passes under the MD Route 1 bypass along Tollgate Road. It will be followed a few days later by the bridge that's about three-quarters of a mile south of the Williams Street trailhead. This is where the Liriodendron spur trail connects to the main trail.

Signs will be placed at the trailheads and closer to the bridges on the days when work is occurring.

Updates will be posted on the Harford County Government Facebook page.
