Crews repair stream banks along Southern Walnut Creek Trail



Heads up, users of the Southern Walnut Creek Trail.

Crews with the city of Austin’s Public Works Department are working to repair the stream bank along the paved pathway, which is popular with bicyclists and hikers.

According to a press release from the city of Austin, the repairs will stabilize the banks and prevent erosion along Walnut Creek between Delwau Lane and MLK Jr. Boulevard. The trail itself is not affected; just the strip of land between the creek and the trail.

Signs will be posted north and south of where the trail crosses MLK Jr. Boulevard. Flaggers will also alert trail users to the construction zone. Delays may occur when heavy equipment is crossing the path.

Construction should be finished by Oct. 15, officials say.
