More Trail Progress – Retaining Walls Under US75

Posted in Bike Trails and Routes, City Stuff by dickdavid on December 5, 2010

Retaining Wall Progress

We figured that this would probably be the hardest part of the trail construction – building under the highway and next to a creek – and understandably the slowest. Just when we were thinking that the actual construction under Central Expressway (US75) has slowed down to a halt, we discovered that some major progress has been made. As seen with other Richardson creek-side construction, the stone and wire retaining walls (assumably to prevent erosion) are coming in nicely.

Once it’s finished, it will be well worth the wait.
