Major portions of Afton State Park will be inaccessible by vehicle for two weeks in September while a bridge repair project takes place on the main road through the park.
The bridge repair will begin on Monday, Sept. 12, with the road expected to reopen on Monday, Sept. 26. During this time, the park office (just east of the park entrance off 70th Avenue) will remain open for vehicle permit and merchandise sales.
The park’s visitor center, located near the main parking area, will be closed while the bridge is under construction. Campgrounds and lodging also will be closed during the project. The paved trail that runs alongside the main road will be closed because it passes through the construction area.
Vault toilets will be available for visitors who enter the park on foot. Restrooms are also available at the park office.
