A bridge crossing Dry Comal Creek connecting the Town Creek subdivision and mixed-use community to downtown neighborhoods via North Guenther Avenue opened March 4.

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


The $1.5 million bridge project was funded by the developer, Town Creek Partners, and was designed by HMT Engineering and Surveying. There is a two-year warranty from the developer after the city of New Braunfels takes over maintenance of the bridge, according to David Ferguson, communications coordinator with the city of New Braunfels. The city of New Braunfels does not have a timeline for when it will take over maintenance of the bridge. The project began in 2020.
