The pedestrian bridge behind Carlson Library will be closed Monday, Aug. 5, through Thursday, Aug. 8, due to work in the Ottawa River.

The final phase of Ottawa River restoration is under way and includes removing non-native invasive plants along the riverbank and adding large rocks, logs and other natural materials to mimic actual water flow and allow more diversity in the aquatic habitat.

The in-stream work is the final phase of the project that has included adding more than 300 native plants and trees along the banks of the river and creating a cut bank area near the Law Center last summer that will allow for more water storage during higher river levels.

The final phase of restoration is expected be complete by Aug. 12.
