BREAKING: Half-mile of River Trail in Marietta closed

Marietta city officials have closed approximately 0.5 miles of the River Trail in Marietta beginning at Walmart to just past the Duck Creek Bridge.

Project Manager Eric Lambert with the Marietta Engineering Department said the trail appears to have slipped into the Duck Creek bank. Consulting engineers are en route to determine the extent of the damage.

The eastern section of River Trail will be closed for the foreseeable future according to Safety-Service Director Steve Wetz.

Officials ask that pedestrians, cyclists and other users of the trail avoid the area.
