A 2-mile section of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail in Hazelwood will close for several months beginning Aug. 5.

The segment of trail connects a trailhead facility at Hazelwood Avenue through the Almono development site, the former LTV Steel property, to the Hot Metal Bridge. The closure is necessary as work begins on the entire Almono site, Friends of the Riverfront said.

Executive Director Thomas Baxter said the group is working with the Regional Industrial Development Corp., managers of the site, to build a safe alternative.
