Arnsberg-Oeventrop: New construction of Dinscheder Bridge

The Dinscheder Bridge over the Ruhr in Arnsberg-Oeventrop is expected to be rebuilt by the end of 2023. The Ruhr can be crossed via a parallel temporary bridge. The detour is signposted, more information can be found on the Strassen.NRW website.


Wickede (Ruhr):

Due to the renovation of the Christian-Liebrecht-Straße, the usual route is not passable. The detour is signposted on site.

Alternative route: Iserlohn

In Iserlohn, there may be short-term closures on the main route of the RuhrtalRadweg. An alternative route is signposted locally and leads via the districts of Hennen and Rheinen or via junctions 30, 29, 27 to 25. From here, the RuhrtalRadweg will follow the previous route again.

In the long term, the RuhrtalRadweg will be relocated closer to the Ruhr here; planning is already underway.

Fröndenberg / Holzwickede

Due to its new asphalting, the previously gravelled section of road between Dellwig and Ruhrstr. must be closed from 15.04. to probably 04.05.2024 and diverted south of the Ruhr during this time. Instead of using junction 37, travel downstream directly to junction 22 (Ruhrstr., on the Iserlohn side of the river) or continue upstream towards junction 21 (south of Fröndenberg, on the Menden side).

As part of the construction of the new "Seepark Hengsteysee", 500 meters of the RuhrtalRadweg will probably have to be closed for a year. A short detour is signposted on site. From summer 2024, you will then find an attractive new leisure offer directly on the RuhrtalRadweg.

Due to major renovation work on the Ruhr weir, the RuhrtalRadweg between Witten-Wengern and Witten-Bommern will probably have to be closed until the end of the year. A convenient detour is the route of the former Elbschetalbahn and through the residential area in Bommern, which is already recommended and used as a detour in the event of flooding.

Mülheim an der Ruhr - Mintard

The RuhrtalRadweg under the A52 is currently closed due to fallen trees. Unfortunately, no detour has been signposted by the responsible public works authority. It is possible to bypass this section via the L62 (August-Thyssen-Straße), but we would ask you to take EXTREME CAUTION with the fast vehicle traffic there! We hope that the closure can be lifted as soon as possible.


Oberhausen-Alstaden: Railroad bridge and Ruhr bridge

The RuhrtalRadweg at the railroad underpass on Speldorf Str. is currently closed due to extensive construction work by DB. In addition, the embankment had to be closed for an indefinite period of time due to the effects of flooding. The RuhrtalRadweg can also be temporarily closed further south (downstream from the A40) due to further work on the Ruhr railroad bridges. Detour north-east in an arc through the residential areas. ATTENTION: The Kewerstr. bridge over the railroad, which is used as a detour, is also due to be closed soon. Unfortunately, neither the city of Oberhausen nor we have any more detailed information on closure times and detours.

Due to construction work on the Karl Lehr Bridge in Duisburg-Kasslerfeld, there will be a closure at the end of the RuhrtalRadweg under the bridge on Ruhrorter Straße for several years. The large-scale car bridge renovation is unfortunately beyond our control and a cycle path must unfortunately be subordinate to such projects. As all possible bypasses were not optimal and attractive and do not meet the requirements of a 4* quality cycle path, the RuhrtalRadweg will be rerouted for the duration of the major construction site, which will last several years.

The new route now branches off at Emmericher Straße and leads via Duisburg-Duissern directly to the Buckelbrücke bridge in Duisburg's inner harbor, where you can end your tour comfortably in one of the numerous restaurants. The route has been specially signposted and even resurfaced in places. Tourist information boards with overview maps have also been installed. This new, temporary finish point provides you with an attractive end to your tour. For all those who would like to continue cycling to the Rhine Orange, there are also route suggestions from the inner harbor to the mouth of the Ruhr (can also be seen on the two signs on site):
