Oyster Creek Bridges Installed
If you’ve walked the Oyster Creek Trail lately, you may have noticed two new pedestrian bridges have been installed across the creek. The bridges were funded and installed by the Gulf Coast Water Authority (GCWA) and administered by the City of Sugar Land Public Works and Parks and Recreation Departments. The project began with the construction of the bridge abutments in September. The bridges were installed on November 18, and the concrete decks were poured in December. There was minimal impact to the park during construction, with the majority of the work within the easement of Oyster Creek. The bridges are a single-span design with a weight rating of 5 tons and a width that permits a small ATV to drive across for maintenance work, as well as Fire and Police Department access.
The bridges are now open for pedestrian use!
