Update: Trail Conditions After Storm

In the 24 hours since yesterdays post on Tropical Storm Hermine's effects on the Trinity Trails, 2 major clean-ups have taken place:

  • The large tree blocking the low water crossing at Bellaire and Southwest Blvd. (Hwy. 183) has been chainsawed and removed from the low water crossing:

  • And the thick layer of mud and debris at the Beach St (at I-30) near Gateway Park has been removed:

Water still covers most of the low water crossings, especially those downstream from downtown, but the water will probably recede sometime this weekend.  Gateway Park has reopened.

It will probably take longer to get the Marine Creek section of the trails (near & under the Stockyards) cleaned of mud and debris since heavy equipment (front end loaders) can get onto that section of trail.  They'll be an update on that stretch of trail next week.
