This story has been updated. 

A portion of the Santa Fe Trail on U.S. Air Force Academy property will be closed for nine days while crews tear down a bridge. 

The crews will be working on the tri-intersection bridge, which is about three-tenths of a mile south of mile marker 42. The section of the trail under the bridge will be closed through Friday, and then again September 4 through September 7. It will be open for Labor Day weekend. 

The trail was originally scheduled to be closed for seven days, but the closure was extended on Tuesday.
