1604 trailhead officially opens 2 Aug; work continues to Eisenhower
The official opening for the 1604 trailhead of the Salado Creek Greenway is set for Friday, 2 August at 8:30 a.m. Work has been completed for the trailhead and the parking lot. Work continues as clearing had been started along the old Medicine Wall Road area, located north of Loop 1604. The trail will be completed at Eisenhower Park. From the other end, the Leon Creek Greenway is complete to the backside of The Ricchi, a condominium complex. It ends approximately 1,640 feet (500 m) short of Eisenhower Park. Parks and Recreation have posted that the two trails will meet during the summer of 2020.
An approximate 15-foot (4.5-meter) wide path had been graded to accommodate a greenway pavement that usually is 10 feet (3 m) wide. Further down, the classic stone blocks now used on the greenway trails have been delivered for retainer wall construction.
Just beyond the trailhead, stakes and foundation construction have been started in areas near the Loop 1604 bridges.
