Walnut Creek Drive Bridge

Walnut Creek Bridge Detour-01-01

The trail connection between Katherine Rose Memorial Park and Hardy Allmon Soccer Complex that runs under Walnut Creek Drive will be closed to all traffic starting in May 2023 due to a Texas Department of Transportation bridge replacement/repair project. The work is expected to take 10 months and may involve partial road closures, but the trail will be completely inaccessible for the duration of the project. 

For more information about the TXDOT work, timeline, road impact or other project questions, please contact the Public Works department at (817) 276-4243 or visit the road construction updates page.

The first step in the project will create a pedestrian-safe detour that will allow trail users to connect between the parks via an on-street crossing. Once the detour is complete, the bridge connection will be closed. Please follow all posted signs and use the designated detour route shown above to continue on the Walnut Creek Linear Trail while work is underway. Do not cross the street or attempt to pass through the construction zone for your safety and the safety of work crews on scene. 

We will update this page as well as our social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram) with any changes to the work space or timeline as that information is available.
