Shoal Creek Trail repair almost complete

The Austin Park and Recreation Department has nearly completed the Shoal Creek trail restoration from 29th to 31st streets and reopened the section after a two-year closure. The city stabilized the stream bank with large limestone blocks and repaired the trail surface that was heavily damaged by flooding and rains in spring 2015.  PARD’s next steps include painting and adding new sections of fence and removing the staging area at 29th & Lamar.  Combined with the HAWK signal light at 31st and Lamar that stops traffic for pedestrians, the length of the Shoal Creek Trail from 31st Street to Pease Park is again easily and safely accessible to Heritage residents.
