White Rock Creek Trail Closure – Detour

Posted in Bike Trails and Routes, Trail and Road Hazards by dickdavid on June 15, 2012

With all of the construction happening with LBJ (Interstate 635), the White Rock Creek Trail will be closed for about 2 months. There is a detour with directional signage to help guide cyclist get across the highway. Here (pdf) is a map of the detour and signage.

Until it’s reopened, the best route for users is the Cottonwood Creek Trail crossover @ the High 5.

    Now is a good time for a reminder about the gap in the Cottonwood Trail at Maham, approaching from the south (Texas Instruments). The hike/bike trail continues north along Maham about a 100 yards north. It was unmarked, last time I was there, hopefully corrected by now.

    Also, the construction on LBJ has eliminated the highway overpass at Welch, in Farmers Branch, near the REI. This was a favorite and well used point to cross the freeway. I understand that the bike staff at REI crosses near Galleria, using Dallas Parkway and Harvest hill, but don’t quote me on that.

    I have used Inwood to cross, and it’s not as bad as you might think. I still miss Welch, a lot. There’s a lot of folks very irritated with the WRC Trail closure…and I really hope that it is only two months…

    I’ve put together a Google Map of the detour that might be easier to read than the PDF. http://goo.gl/maps/vqV3
