Trail Repairs in Progress Between Abrams and Skillman

Please use caution when using the trail between Abrams and Skillman for the next couple of weeks.

 Dallas Water Utilities crews are repairing areas damaged by construction vehicles during work on the adjacent sewer line. This is will be a great improvement. This section was in poor condition even before work on the sewer started.

Some sections have already been repaired while others have barricades where the concrete was removed. As of yesterday (Jan. 20), one entire section of the trail was demolished and new concrete was poured. There is no paved bypass around these areas so trail users will need to walk, run or cycle through the grass areas on the sides of the trail until the work is completed. Members of the crew said that work on this area of the trail will continue at least into next week.

The Friends of the White Rock Creek Trail would like to express our appreciation to the Dallas Park and Recreation and Water Utilities departments for quickly addressing this issue.
