Guardrail installation causing trail closures

Monday, September 10, 2018 by Katy McElroy

This week, the city will begin replacing the temporary water barriers on the southern portion of Cesar Chavez Street near B.R. Reynolds Drive with permanent guardrail to ensure sufficient separation between users of the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail and everyday traffic. The guardrail will cover 480 feet, from behind the curb from B.R. Reynolds Drive to just beyond the speed limit sign near Sandra Muraida Way. To install the guardrail, the part of the Butler Hike and Bike Trail along Lady Bird Lake from B.R. Reynolds Drive to Sandra Muraida Way will be closed daily from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Trail users will be rerouted to the Lance Armstrong Bikeway on the north side of Cesar Chavez. In addition, the curbside eastbound lane on Cesar Chavez will be closed between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Weather permitting, the work is scheduled to be finished by Monday, Sept. 24.
