Shoal Creek Trail erosion work begins

Wednesday, February 6, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Watershed Protection Department is scheduled to begin erosion repair work along Shoal Creek Trail near 12th Street. The trail that runs alongside Shoal Creek Boulevard, between 12th and Lamar, is badly eroded and the problem is rapidly worsening. This week the trail will be detoured to the sidewalk by House Park Stadium. In the following weeks, the trail will be closed during the week and open on most Fridays and weekends. The work will include the removal of invasive plants that are choking the stream and inhibiting the growth of native plants. A new limestone block wall will be built to serve as a retaining wall for 100 feet of stream bank. Since the trail repair work is being done in the creek bed, all work is weather permitting. Once this section of trail is repaired, the crew will begin work on Shoal Creek Trail near Sixth Street.
