What is being done to the Galveston Sub UPRR (Union Pacific Railroad) Bridge?
Following the Union Pacific Railroad’s reconstruction of the Galveston Sub UPRR Bridge, the Flood Control District will be improving the channel around the bridge. Construction for the bridge by Union Pacific Railroad will begin in Summer 2020 and is anticipated to be complete in Winter 2020/2021. Once bridge construction is completed, the Flood Control District will finish the channel work near the bridge with an expected completion for the entire project in Winter of 2021/2022. This channel improvements will allow the Houston Parks Board to build a trail on the North and South side of the bayou that connects to the existing trail downstream of the railroad tracks.
