We received a message last week (11/17) from Lara Kohl, Public Relations Manager for Bluebonnet Contractors and Trinity Infrastructure (contractors for the LBJ reconstruction project). Ms. Kohl said that “We are about to complete a temporary detour of the While Rock Creek bike path at Park Central & IH 635. The detour path will be adjacent to the existing path, about 15′ to the east. This is keeping with our commitment to maintain bike and pedestrian accessibility during construction.”
One of our trail scouts was out this morning and confirmed that the detour is in place. An approximate map of the detour area is shown at the right. You can click on it to be taken to Google maps.
We’re not sure how long the temporary trail will be in place. This is the first of what will likely be multiple detours and temporary closings of the White Rock Creek Trail that will be necessary to accommodate this massive construction project.
