A bridge crossing Dry Comal Creek connecting the Town Creek subdivision and mixed-use community to downtown neighborhoods via North Guenther Avenue is in the final stages of completion.

The bridge provides secondary access to Town Creek, which has one entrance and exit at the intersection of North Walnut Avenue and North Academy Avenue.


The city of New Braunfels does not have a timeline for when it will take over maintenance of the bridge, and there will be a two-year warranty for the Town Creek developer after the city takes it over, according to David Ferguson, communications coordinator with the city of New Braunfels.
