Updates To The Central Expressway and Renner Road Underpasses

Posted in Bike Trails and Routes, City Stuff by dickdavid on May 9, 2011

A bunch has happened since our last report on the almost completion of the first Central Expressway underpass , just south of Renner Road.

It now appears that the second Central underpass, just north of Renner Road, has been poured as well. That portion of the Richardson trail – from Alma Road (at the PGB Tollway), running under Central Expressway, then around to Renner Road – is complete.

Coming Out On The West Side

The underpass at Renner Road – connecting this new trail to the existing Spring Creek Trail – is all that is left. As of a few weeks ago, it still looked like there was plenty of work that needed to be done. This weekend, we discovered that quite a bit of progress has happened and that underpass is well on it’s way towards completion.

Check out the pics:
