Terry Hershey Park Bike Trail Under Sam Houston Tollway at Buffalo Bayou to Close Temporarily

Beginning October 20, 2010, the segment of Terry Hershey Park bike trail located under the Sam Houston Tollway at Buffalo Bayou/Rummel Creek will be closed to the public while asphalt for a new bike path is overlaid. 

The trail will re-open to the public in its new configuration on November 5, 2010. The new trail will continue to provide access to the parking lot and the trail underneath the frontage road.

These improvements are part of the Buffalo Bayou erosion control project for the substructure of the Sam Houston Tollway bridge over Buffalo Bayou.  This project is to repair excessive slope erosion and install preventative measures to support the embankment along Buffalo Bayou and the Deerwood exit.  The project is expected to be complete in July 2011.
