Trail Impacts: Denton Creek Maintenance

Beginning in August, Public Works will begin construction of the Denton Creek Grade Control Structure. Construction will require the section of trail that follows Denton Creek underneath Denton Tap and connects Andrew Brown West to Andrew Brown Central to be closed for the duration of the project (estimated to be 6 weeks). 

During construction, park users are encouraged to follow all detour signs and throughout the parks. Alternate routes in varying lengths are available at Andrew Brown East and West, so that users can continue to recreate with minimal impact during the project. Detour maps and alternate routes are provided below. Users should follow suggested routes to cross Denton Tap Road from Andrew Brown West to Central and should NOT cross at park entrances, where no crosswalk exists.

Users may also cross Denton Tap to the north at Natches Trace. Street crossing is NOT advised at park entrances, where no crosswalk exists.
