Runners, walkers and cyclists may soon have an alternate route along the Brushy Creek Regional Trail. Williamson County, the Upper Brushy Creek Water Control and Improvement District, and the City of Cedar Park are asking for resident input on a project to design and construct a ten-foot-wide permanent route. The trail would run along Brushy Creek Road from the existing sidewalk at Arrowhead Trail to Champion Park.
An open house is scheduled 5–7 p.m. May 30 at the pavilions in Champion Park, 3830 Brushy Creek Road, Cedar Park. Residents have the opportunity to learn about the new route any why its needed.
When completed, the alternate trail route will improve access to Champion Park and ensure continuous trail use while a portion of original trail is closed for upgrades to the Upper Brushy Creek WCID Dam No. 7. According to a statement from Williamson County, Brushy Creek Regional Trail will not be closed until the alternate route is completed and ready for public use.
