ST. GEORGE — The Virgin River Trail and river itself under I-15 will be closed for all public use for the next several months as Utah Department of Transportation crews widen the freeway and replace the bridges over the river.
To facilitate construction of the new bridges, the Virgin River has been routed through a large pipe during the construction period. The river will remain impassable during construction. Those desiring to float down the river should exit the river at the Confluence Park Trailhead and re-enter the river at the Man-o-War Trailhead.
