Southern Walnut Creek Trail Closures Coming

September 30, 2015

Heads up if you regularly ride the Southern Walnut Creek Trail. From the City of Austin Urban Trails Program:

Southern Walnut Creek Trail to Close Between Delwau Lane and MLK Jr. Blvd (FM 969)

Portion of trail to close for 15 business days to address erosion issues

The Southern Walnut Creek Trail between Delwau Lane and FM 969 (MLK Jr. Boulevard) will close for 15 business days starting Monday, Oct. 5 at 6:00 a.m. through Friday, Oct. 23 at 1 p.m. The trail will reopen for the weekends. Click here to view a map of the closed section.
Due to flood damage from earlier this year, and the anticipation of a rainy fall, the Public Works Department determined this preventative maintenance is necessary for the continued safety and enjoyment of all trail users.
It is recommended that trail users traveling south exit at the YMCA and use 51st Street to access Springdale Road. Trail users travelling north should use Springdale Road as an alternative to the trail. During the closure, trail users should follow all signage and safety precautions.
