Portion of Brushy Creek Trail closed in June

Post Date:05/02/2017

 Railroad Trestle

A portion of the Brushy Creek Regional Trail will be temporarily closed from June 5 to June 30, 2017, due to upgrades to the railroad bridge by Capital Metro. The closed portion of the trail runs under the railroad trestle (bridge), near Brushy Creek Sports Park.

. While the bridge work is under construction, Williamson County will perform needed repairs to the adjacent boardwalk. There is no alternate route available for this portion of the trail. For safety reasons, the trail and construction area will be completely fenced off and not open to the public during construction. Progress will be assessed throughout the construction period to determine if more time will be needed or, conversely, if the trail can be reopened ahead of schedule.

Capital Metro will make scheduled upgrades to the MetroRail Red Line on the railroad bridge between Lakeline and Leander Stations. The bridge work is required to enable long-term speed, safety and reliability enhancements along the Red Line. The construction will affect the last morning departure from Leander to Downtown Station and the first afternoon train from downtown to Leander. Capital Metro will provide bus service between Lakeline and Leander Stations for affected riders. The construction also will close a portion of the Brushy Creek Regional Trail.

Customers traveling southbound from Leander on the 8:40 a.m. train will board a dedicated bus to take them to Lakeline Station, where they will be able to catch the 9:22 a.m. southbound train. Customers traveling northbound to Leander on the 3:44 p.m. departure from Downtown Station will transfer at Lakeline Station to a dedicated bus that will take them to Leander.

Capital Metro will work to ensure minimal disruption to its customers, as well as to park patrons. For more information, please call 512-389-7525, email feedback@capmetro.org or go to capmetro.org/.
