In partnership with the Parks and Recreation Department, the Austin Public Works’ Urban Trails Program will begin construction to extend the Northern Walnut Creek Trail in late October / early November. The project, known as ‘Northern Walnut Creek Trail Section 2A’ will install a roughly 1.3-mile long, 12-foot-wide concrete trail from the Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park trailhead to the Walnut Bluffs trailhead at Oakbrook Dr., just east of North Lamar Blvd. Construction for this project is expected to last 12 months.
A contractor, M.A. Smith Contracting Co., Inc., has been selected to construct this project and is expected to begin construction in the coming weeks. We invite you to a virtual public meeting to further explain the project scope, potential construction impacts, and answer any questions you may have.This meeting will be held online through Zoom on November 4 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
