After a delay related to permitting installation of the bridge deck for the pedestrian bridge over Barton Creek has finally begun. The bridge deck beams for this segment should be in place by the end of next week. The bridge over 360 is already complete as well as the urban trail that extends south along the Mopac frontage road from the existing sidewalk at Via Fortuna across from Barton Creek mall.
Once complete there will be a protected, paved trail extending from downtown to the Mopac frontage road just south of the creek. Unfortunately once there you’ll have to deal with traffic to continue farther south.
The next phase of the trail will extend to Oak Hill, but it’s still in the planning stage and is not funded.
