New construction projects on the Ashland Greenway will have bikers enjoying a smoother ride.
Around 7 miles of trail will be closed off and on this summer.
The Oregon Department of Transportation has provided a $1.7 million grant for the construction.
A quarter-mile section from the Ashland dog park through Eagle Mill Road and South Valley View Road is currently closed and scheduled to reopen on Wednesday.
A 3.5-mile section from Barnett Road to 10th Street in Medford is also closed and is scheduled to reopen July 9.
A minor construction project will close a section near the Biddle Road access ramps also on July 9.
