Gretchen Hoffman Hikers will have to navigate around a construction site a little longer than planned as Forest Service workers put the finishing touches on a new pedestrian bridge northeast of La Canada Flintridge. The Arroyo Canyon bridge, which is located about three miles north of Windsor Road in La Canada Flintridge, has been closed to all foot and equestrian traffic since June 24, Angeles National Forest officials said. Construction of a new bridge was estimated to be completed July 31, but officials now say hikers and horseback riders should expect to be rerouted around the construction site until Aug. 15. The new concrete bridge is being built in response to public concern over the poor condition of the old bridge's wood decking.
