Cary Bayou Trail Bridges Are Being Replaced

The Cary Bayou Trail Bridges are closed beginning Friday 19, 2011 until October.  I asked Parks Superintendent Scott Johnson if he could give us a bit more info:

Bert, the contractor should begin construction on the bridge abutments later this week or early next week.  We are expecting the bridges to be delivered in 2 to 4 weeks.

We are figuring everything to be back to normal by October 1st at the latest sooner if the good construction weather holds (and it don’t look like the weather is going to change any time soon)

The new bridges will be 8 feet wide and we are looking forward to the improvements to the trail.  The granite (piles) will be used for the walking surface on the bridges and we have several spots on the trails that need some more granite.

The 3rd and remaining bridge is maintained by Harris County and will remain.
