Bikers, bats, and bridges, oh my!Bikers, bats, and bridges, oh my!https://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=196812018-04-11T05:00:00Z2018-04-11T21:00:00Z

​​​AUSTIN – The Trail Bridge at Congress Ave. will update a decades-old bridge and bring much needed safety enhancements for runners, walkers, and cyclists.

The existing trail under the bridge has sharp turns, is about six feet wide in some areas, and is over 40 years old.

The Trail Foundation said the new path will be about 14 feet wide and parts of it will be made of steel and concrete, costing around $2.5 million.

Additionally, the new bridge will make the area ADA-accessible, improve the visual appeal, provide connectivity with the Waller Creek area, create a site to view the Congress Ave. bats, and lower the city's maintenance costs.

It is expected to be complete by summer 2018.​
