Flood repairs force closure of road segment by County Parks building
The 2 ½-week project is scheduled for completion Feb. 27, a press release states.
Just east of 21st Street, Creek Crossing Road ties into Rio Grande Street several hundred feet north of Bear Creek. The road passes a parking lot near the park's Pavilion #4 and normally - on the south side of the creek - provides access to the County Parks administration building and the Nymann Garden.
During the current closure, the south side can be accessed via a creek pedestrian bridge near Pavilion #4. Cars can park in the lot that's also by the pavilion.
In the Creek Crossing Road bridge project, contractors are removing damaged culverts and installing a concrete box culvert, riprap and guardrails. Paving will occur at a later date, the release adds.
The work has been planned since last fall, with 75 percent of the $57,000 cost covered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, according to county information at that time.
